Granite

Granite is literally as old as the earth, an igneous rock formed from magma, with an attractive high dense grain. Being hard and durable and having the ability to be polished to mirror finish it lends itself to many and varied applications, both indoors and out, such as wall cladding, flooring as well as kitchen bench tops. It also makes a dramatically striking building façade. The elegance of granite is timeless. Its natural beauty gives an aura of distinction.
