Granite and Marble, the natural application choice.
Granites and marbles are not manufactured; they are products of nature. Granite is composed primarily of quartz, feldspar and mica, while marbles are made up of calcite. Other materials may be present in these stones that create special colors, textures and patterns. These stones are quarried in large blocks that are cut into slabs that are then fabricated into countertops, fireplace surroundings and flooring. Because each block is different and each slab is different, your application is unique, unlike anything else in the world.
Granite and Marble Qualities
Granite is one of the hardest materials on earth. Used as countertop material, it is resistant to scratches, acid, stains and heat. It is long lasting, durable and available in a wide variety of colors, textures and unique crystal patterns that create a warm and inviting environment for your kitchen or bath.
Marble works beautifully, especially in the bath, where the veining patterns and colors, that appear, can be used to create exquisite designs. Marble is sensitive to acidic foods such as vinegar, lemon, tomatoes, wine, as well as some of the tile cleaners, mildew removers and other materials commonly found in the kitchen or bath which will dull a polished finish. Some marbles with honed or matte finishes, make exceptionally high quality kitchen countertops, bathrooms, fireplace facing and mantels, bar tops and furniture.
