Granite is a common type of felsic intrusive igneous rock that is granular and phaneritic in texture. Granites can be predominantly white, pink, or gray in color, depending on their mineralogy. The word “granite” comes from the Latin granum, a grain, in reference to the coarse-grained structure of such a holocrystalline rock. Strictly speaking, granite is an igneous rock with between 20% and 60% quartz by volume, and at least 35% of the total feldspar consisting of alkali feldspar, although commonly the term “granite” is used to refer to a wider range of coarse-grained igneous rocks containing quartz and feldspar.
Granite is the most exclusive of all building stones, and its slabs and tiles occupy a prominent place among dimensional stones. The fascinating colors, heavy gloss mirror polish, and textural patterns make granite slabs and granite tiles extremely popular in the market.
