Granite characteristics include strength and durability. It's a unique and elegant natural stone. It's also one of the oldest, hardest, and strongest stones available. The looks obtained from using granite are versatile. From an unassuming elegance to a bold "look at me" statement. That means it is at home in a country farm house as well as in a modern high rise. It's all about the color and texture you choose.
Granite is a highly durable siliceous stone. The main minerals in true granites are silicates, feldspar, and quartz. The most important mineral is quartz. It's not granite without quartz. Compared to marble, it is more resistant to the acids found in lemons, vinegars, and cleaning products and usually will not etch.
Granite characteristics make this stone virtually scratch proof. It will not scratch even when directly cut on. Things such as keys, coins, utensils, and appliances won't scratch it either. In fact, granite will actually dull your knives. Little slivers of the knife can become embedded in your stone. This is very noticeable with the darker stones so make a note if you are using your stone as a cutting board.
