Granite is an igneous rock made up of primarily quartz, feldspar, micas, amphiboles, and some selection of additional trace minerals. The minerals’ composition and the different effects they create give granite the varying colors and textures that make it so appealing. In scientific terms, granite is a plutonic rock that is composed of quartz, which is most commonly semi-transparent white, and feldspar, which is usually a pinkish or white hue. Granite is formed in place during the cooling period of molten rock. The slower the rock cools, the larger the mineral crystal deposits in the resulting granite, giving the stone depth and visual interest.
