Granite is naturally occurring hard, crystalline, igneous rock primarily made of feldspar, quartz, mica and amphiboles. Aesthetically, granite is one of the finest materials available and has many options in color and patterns. Granite has an illustrious history of being used as one of the best building materials not only due to the quality of the stone, but also for its rich colors and patterns. The only natural material harder is diamond. Granite is durable; it is resistant to heat, scratches and stains. Granite does not harbor bacteria. Some might say a downfall to granite is the need to reseal it. With MMG this is not a problem since we have a sealer available which has a lifetime guarantee.
