Granite is one of the strongest stones on the planet. This is one reason why granite is popular as a building material for work both inside and outside the home. Natural granite is formed by magma rising through the crust of the Earth, forming over thousands of years.
In this video, you can see how granite is extracted from quarries with minimal loss and cut into 20,000 kilogram blocks—small enough for granite factories to cut into slabs. At the factory, granite slabs are cut into smaller slabs. These slabs are then polished, revealing the true beauty of the granite. The amount of polishing determines the glossiness of the slab. Rough finishes are created by applying heat to the granite, which explodes the quartz located in the stone.
