Exotic Granite has been prized for centuries for its beauty, durability, and resistance to both chipping and scratching. Impervious to heat and second in hardness only to diamonds, under normal circumstances, granite will hold up well to hot pans, and could actually dull your knives, if you cut something on its surface. Granite is a grained, volcanic rock that contains crystallized minerals such as mica, quartz, and feldspar.

It can be found on several continents around the world, and is almost a million years old when it is quarried from the Earth. Properly cared for granite can last for many years, and sometimes even outlasts the building that houses it.
