Granite


To choose granite, is to choose true quality

This classic stone offers versatile application possibilities. Due to its robust structure, it can be used wherever the material is exposed to a high degree of wear. In addition, granite is extremely hard and weather resistant, and characterised by a very good sandability. The high-quality granite is also extremely well polishable. Therefore, granite is not only used in the construction of roads and railways, and in garden design, but is also becoming increasingly popular in interior finishing. The use of granite in wall covers, classic staircases, kitchen countertops or washstands creates a noble and high-class ambience.
 

Occurrence and mining of granite

All these advantages come at a favourable price! Granite is an enormously common type of rock in the continental crust. Plate shifts gave rise to granitic magma, which then turned into the famous granite stone. In Europa, granite is mainly found in the Alps, the Bavarian Forest, the Odenwald, the Black Forest, and the Vosges. Worldwide, especially China and India are among the countries with high granite deposits.

Individual colour selection and advice

The medium to coarse-grained rock, composed mainly of minerals and quartz, is popular mainly because of its homogeneous mineral distribution. The uniform attractive appearance and the large colour range from light grey to red, blue and yellow tones, to granite stone dyed black is very large, offering customers an optimal choice.
