Granite and Marble have been a popular choice for countertops in recent years. The natural look, uniquness, variation in colour and pattern make this material the perfect choice for those who love natural stone. Granite and Marble require some maintenance to keep the surface resistant to heat, bacteria and staining.
Granite is an igneous rock with between 20% and 60% quartz by volume, and at least 35% of the total feldspar consisting of alkali feldspar, although commonly the term "granite" is used to refer to a wider range of coarse-grained igneous rocks containing quartz and feldspar.
Marble is a metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals, most commonly calcite or dolomite
