Natural granite slabs are unique; no two pieces are identical. Each slab, color and variation has its own charm and appeal. From rich earth tones, vibrant shades of green, blue, red or yellow, to more basic tones of black, gray and white, there is a natural granite slab that will be at home, in your home, regardless of design style. Many compare their granite countertops to a one-of-a kind priceless piece of art.
Additionally, while there are many dramatic granite slabs and colors, there is also just as many granite slabs in softer tones, with less dramatic veining.
Since granite countertops can last a lifetime, contain no harmful chemicals and not emit harmful radiation or gasses, they have a place in the green building movement.
Granite scores a 7 on Mohs scale of hardness. This means that very few minerals are able to scratch it. You can cut on it, but it isn't recommended since this will dull your knives and possibly leave a metal behind that can be difficult to remove.
