Granite - the plutonic rock

Granite comes from the molten material of Earth’s lower crust, where magma chambers with liquid rock form during periods of up to 15 million years.

Granite solidifies at a depth of over 2km under the Earth’s surface. It reaches the surface over very long periods of time through elevations, depressions and tectonic faults and appears as a mighty mountain or a rugged rock formation.

Granite is made from feldspar, quartz and mica. Its crystalline structure is responsible for the high degree of resistance, hardness and weatherproofness.
