Granite is a commonly used building stone which has a wide purpose. The main minerals that can be found in it are: orthoclase, plaglioclas, quartz and biotite. Granite is mainly extracted in countries such as: China, India, Africa, Brazil, Russia, Canada and the USA.
Granite is one of the hardest rocks all over the world, resistant to abrasion. Thanks to the uniqe technical specifications it gained the popularity. As a stone itself, it is exceptionally comely and it can be seen in the following colourations: grey, brown, yellow, red, blue, green, black. However, its spectacular look can be visibile, when it undergoes the special treatment as all the qualities are hidden inside. Granite is used in construction as a building stone (grit, sett, kerbstones, blocks) and as a decorative one (cladding sheets), used by the interior designers, who make use of these stones while making flats, gardens decorations, living rooms or offices.
Granite is delivered in the form of of big slabs. They undergo the processes of cutting and polishing. The slabs, which are to have a rough surface (non-slippery floors) undergo the burning process.
