Materials Granite

Granite is a magma rock, which was formed by lava cooling under or above earths’ surface. Due to its solidness and resistance to outdoor ambient conditions, granite is by far the most common and technically most important rock in architecture and construction with its average density of 2750 kg/m3.Granite is a type of rock which is granular and phaneritic in texture. The Egyptians used granite in process of making obelisks.   Granite is nearly always massive (lacking internal structures), hard and tough and therefore it has gained widespread use as a construction stone. Polished granite is also a popular choice for kitchen worktops due high durability and aesthetic qualities available in a whole spectrum of colors Because of its structure and variety in colour, its solidness (hardness) and time persistence, it is extremely suitable for indoor and outdoor surfaces, everywhere where mechanical and ambient burdens are the strongest. Granite is used for making cobblestone, curbs, tunnel lining, monument  stands.
