BEAUTY OF NATURE!
Granite is an igneous plutonic rock, which during its development was melted volcanic lava, but unlike the lava, never reached the surface. Without reaching the outside, this molten rock slowly cooled and crystallized forming a very uniform speckled stone. Essential recognition characteristics for granites are the randomness of the mineral grains and the compact structure, once there are almost no recognizable cavities.
The natural appeal of the stone, with its textured, gently-hued beauty, is unsurpassed by most any other material.
Granite resists heat, scratches and stains, protects against mold and mildew. Granite offers an impenetrable surface from which bacteria can be easily cleaned and it is typically not affected by citric acid, coffee, tea, alcohol, or wine. It is also nearly impossible to scratch, and with proper cleaning, will not stain under normal use.

These variations are expected and are the source of its natural beauty.
