Granite is an igneous rock composed mostly of quartz, alkali feldspar, and plagioclase. It forms from magma with a high content of silica and alkali metal oxides that slowly cools and solidifies underground.

Granite is one of the hardest natural materials in the world, the only material that is harder than granite is a diamond. The hardness of granite makes it durable, resistant to scratches, chips, and cracks. Like other natural stones, granite needs to be sealed periodically to prevent liquids from penetrating the stone.
