You’ve seen it in kitchens, bathrooms and floors probably more times than you can count, but have you ever wondered how the beautiful, naturally-formed is made? Granite is naturally formed through the cooling and solidification of molten rock like other igneous stone. Unlike other stones that are heavily concentrated is specific areas of the world, the formation of granite is a fairly global occurrence. However, the geography, heat and pressure on each deposit leaves its own unique footprint, so the appearance of granite can vary greatly.
