How Is Granite Formed?

Granite is a natural stone which is formed under extreme pressure in the Earth’s crust. This pressure is compared with the same temperatures and pressures that make carbon into Diamonds.

To put it plainly, Granite is a solid rock. It survives temperatures of thousands of degrees and pressure making it such a strong material withstand almost anything.

Granite is a natural stone, and due to the way it is formed, it will trap other minerals, rock types and metals in the Granite that gives it its uniqueness, making it perfect for work surfaces. This provides a huge range of colours and textures to the stone, making every slab unique.

Granite has been used as a building material for thousands of years. You will be sure to see Granite used in old buildings making sure it withstands the test of time.

If outside, Granite will tend to weather after a few years or decades and therefore wear away after a few thousand years! Caring for the Granite as best are you can is always a good option so you know yours will withstand all the elements in your kitchen.

Do’s & Don’ts Of Granite Care

As we have been discussing, Granite is an exceptionally strong material for kitchen countertops. It is therefore not advisable that you cut anything directly onto the surface as this may tarnish the stone. These scratches can sometimes been seen on the surface too making the stones mirror glazing tarnished.

Over time, this can cause a dull patch to be created. This is apparent when using any rough, abrasive or hard item that you may use over the Granite surface. Some cleaning products may also not be advised to use on your Granite due to the strength of them, they may perish the stone.
