Granite is a coarse-grained intrusive igneous rock composed mostly of quartz, alkali feldspar, and plagioclase. It forms from magma that slowly cools and solidifies underground.
It is a common stone, available in many colors.
Granite is massive (lacking internal layers), hard, and tough. These properties have made granite a widespread construction stone throughout human history, and bring specific characteristics.
Smaller stones are usually split all sides, showing a characteristic rough edge and surface.
Bigger pieces are instead obtained by sawing the blocks to a specific thickness. The resulting surface is not suitable as is, and need to be further processed, with thermal finishing, or bushammering.
Granite is found in blocks, so big sizes can be produced. It is suitable to cut-to size fabrication, and the most common shapes/surfaces are:
Monolithic pieces: considering the size of blocks, pieces up to 4’x8’ can be produced.
