Granite Definition (Shelby Township, MI)

Granite (pronounced /ˈɡrænɨt/) is a common and widely occurring type of intrusive, felsic, igneous rock. Granites usually have a medium to coarse grained texture. Occasionally some individual crystals (phenocrysts) are larger than the groundmass in which case the texture is known as porphyritic. A granitic rock with a porphyritic texture is sometimes known as a porphyry. Granites can be pink to gray in color, depending on their chemistry and mineralogy. By definition, granite has a color index (i.e. the percentage of the rock made up of dark minerals) of less than 25%. Outcrops of granite tend to form tors, and rounded massifs. Granites sometimes occur in circular depressions surrounded by a range of hills, formed by the metamorphic aureole or hornfels. Granite is found in the continental plates of the Earths Crust.

Granite is nearly always massive (lacking internal structures), hard and tough, and therefore it has gained widespread use as a construction stone. The average density of granite is located between 2.65[1]and 2.75 g/cm3, its compressive strength usually lies above 200 MPa and its viscosity at standard temperature and pressure is 3-6 • 1019 Pa·s.[2]

The word granite comes from the Latin granum, a grain, in reference to the coarse-grained structure of such a crystalline rock. According to Wikipedia
