Benefits of using Granite in the home
There are so many benefits to using granite in the kitchen or bathroom. Granite is a very hard natural stone that is extremely durable. The color and texture of the stone is determined by the cooling speed and the amount of quartz and mica that are found in each piece of stone.
Granite is considered one of the best stones to use in your home because it's scratch and wear resistant. You can cut directly on granite without fear of damaging your counter top.
Other properties of this magnificent stone are that it is highly resistant to staining and chipping. Darker granites such Nero Absolute do not require sealing for many years. Dark colours tend to be slightly less porous than whiter colours available today. However, lighter granites purchased from quality quarries are now treated and baked with a resin at the quarry polishing line making them highly stain resistant as well.
