|Granite is an excellent natural stone that can be used for every purpose imaginable. Granite is composed primarily of feldspar and quartz. Granite is an extremely hard stone that resists scratching and staining. Granite comes in a full spectrum of colors that are sure to bring life to your room. Granite is primarily noted for having a tight crystal like pattern formation with a smooth polished finish. However, there are some granites that do have a veining pattern to them. Some granites are also available in a honed or flamed finish. A flamed finish is a rough finish that can be used for both decorative and functional purposes in outdoor areas. Granite is extremely durable and perfectly suited for a variety of surfaces ranging from floors & fireplaces, to showers & countertops. Granite countertops are not only beautiful, but are extremely durable due to their resistance to scratching & heat. Granite countertops can be produced from either granite tile or large custom cut slabs. We hope you enjoy the wide range of granites we offer at Holmes Tile & Marble.
