With minimal maintenance required, your kitchen countertops will look amazing, it will last for centuries. If you’re fitting a new kitchen or simply want to breathe new life into your existing one, granite counters will dramatically transform the look of any kitchen and bring the eye-catching beauty of natural stone into your home. Granite is composed of quartz, feldspars, micas and other minerals. These minerals contribute to the colour and texture of the granite stones. Granites get their wonderful variety of colours and patterns from minerals that are melted into the liquid mass as it is formed.
