If you are planning on renovating your home with natural stone, it is important to know the qualities of each of the major natural stone types. Each natural stone type is unique when it comes to color, durability, and texture.
In this video, you will learn how to tell the difference between granite and other stones. Granite is formed by cooled magma deep within the Earth’s crust. One of granite’s most defining characteristics is the presence of crystals. Another quality of granite is the presence of a multitude of colors. Marble, on the other hand, usually consists of one or two colors. Another characteristic of granite is that it usually comes in much larger slabs than marble.
