Granite is a light-colored igneous rock made up of fine- and coarse-grained crystals of quartz and feldspar. Often dark crystals of mica or hornblende are mixed in the rock giving it a salt and pepper look. The color of granite, often important in its value as a building stone, is mostly determined by the color of the feldspar. Feldspar colors can be white, salmon-colored, tan, or pink. The quartz crystals in granite are generally clear, milky or smoky in color.



Granite can be used indoors and outdoors. Here are some of the most prevalent applications found in modern architecture: 

1. Architectural Stone
  • Exterior and interior cladding panels
  • Stairs and copings
  • Columns
  • Paving and floor covering
  • ignage
  • Window-sills and moldings, etc. 
2. Urban Design
  • Horizontal surfaces (pavers, steps, etc.)
  • Security barriers and railings
  • Urban furniture (park benches, picnic tables, etc.)
  • Monuments (urban and other)
3. Interior Design
  • Bistro tables
  • Countertops and vanities
  • Reception desks
  • Conference tables
  • Pedestals 
4. Civil Engineering
  • Street curbs
  • Bridge pillars
  • Retaining walls
  • Fire-break walls
  • Well bed-plates, mains 


  • Granite resists to city corrosion (pollution and acid rain)
  • It resists remarkably well to wear and tear on interior flooring applications
  • Used outdoors, granite’s mineralogical structure is not influenced by freeze-thaw cycles.
  • Granite also provides a natural acoustic barrier, which is another very practical and exclusive advantage of this stone
  • Its thermal inertia is of great interest to architects and promoters, who have to comply with energy saving programs
  • Finally, granite is an all-natural material to which nothing has been added, or removed
