Granite are 100% natural stones quarried from the earth as enormous chunks of stone, cut to size and honed down until they are smooth.
The appearance of granite is not uniform because stones are coming right out of the earth and are not perfectly designed by nature. For that reason, granite samples can slightly differ from the stone you're ordering. Granite is extremely durable but because it's a natural stone can break or chip if subjected to heavy abuse. With a proper maintenance granite worktops can last for a lifetime and beyond. Granite needs to be sealed on a regular basis.
