Stone 101 - Quarry Photos
Ever wonder where your beautiful granite countertops came from? Granite is an igneous rock of visible crystalline formation and texture. It is composed primarily of feldspar, quartz, and mica. It starts off as liquid magma deep within the earth's core where it is cooled and compressed over millions of years under tons of pressure. It is the quarried, cut and polished. After that process it can be applied in various ways like kitchen countertops, vanity tops, fireplace surrounds as well as Jacuzzi surrounds and other custom designs. From the middle of the earth to the middle of your kitchen, the entire process is truly amazing.
