Afrigran – Granite, Mrable and Caesarstone

Granite is a hard, coarse-grained rock that makes up a large part of every continent many different colours. Granite contains three main minerals – quartz, alkali feldspar, and plagioclase feldspar. These minerals make granite white, pink, or light grey. Granite also contains small amounts of dark brown, dark-green, or black minerals, such as hornblende and biotite mica. The grains of the minerals in granite are large enough that they can easily be distinguished.

The minerals in granite are interlocked like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Consequently, granite is a strong and durable which makes it perfect for kitchen and bathroom tops.
