Granite is a form of igneous rock that forms through the slow, constant crystallisation of magma below the earth’s surface. Made up of mostly quartz and feldspar, granite can also contain small amounts of mica, amongst other minerals. This rich and organic mineral makeup results in the reddy-grey colour scheme, at times speckled with white, that we’ve come to recognise as granite.
This unique composition leads to a beautiful outcome when granite takes the form of tiles and pavers. With granite’s practical qualities (namely, its strength and durability) to its advantage, granite comes in a wide range of colours and finishes across its tiles and pavers. Additional considerations, such as exfoliated non-slip surfaces, mean granite pavers can be used in any kind of exterior setting, also adding versatility to the list of strengths granite gets to boast about.
This is a natural stone that’s easy to maintain and that stands up well under pressure. With its slow formation over centuries, granite’s ready to take all that the world throws at it in the course of everyday use. Granite tiles and pavers are strong choices for both home and commercial spaces and applications alike.
