Where Does Granite Come From? (Shelby Township, MI)

Granite slabs are used for kitchen counters, bathroom counters, vanity counters, fireplaces, mantles and a variety of other items. It is a beautiful and durable rock that is formed from intense heat and pressure in volcanoes over a period of time. Granite is a metamorphic rock. Nevertheless, where does Granite come from.

Well, the majority of granite is imported to the United States from India, Brazil, Italy, China and some parts of Africa. It is excavated from quarries in blocks that are from 10 to 20 feet square. Some blocks are even larger. From these blocks granite slabs are cut.

 The sophisticated and modern state of art machinery that is used to cut wholesale granite slabs once the blocks are in the stockyards make it easier to transport. The slabs are then checked for imperfections such as fissures and surface pits with a resin process. Then they are polished with abrasives and diamond wheels that brings out the beauty of the texture, pattern and color in the granite.

 The granite is then categorized based on its color and thickness and is then sent to the importers or local warehouses that have ordered it. Then you go down to the local vendor and pick out your granite countertops. According to stylesofbeyondmusic.com
