Granite comes from deep inside the earth, typically found in the continental plates, and is formed from magma. It is comprised of quartz, mica, and feldspar. Granite has been used for building purposes since The Red Pyramid of Egypt, 26th century BC. In the 1800’s Alexander MacDonald invented steam powered tools. With those tools granite became the choice material for sculpture and memorials. Now, in the modern day we have computer assisted machines and diamond bladed saws that allow us to make custom countertops and vanities. We even have the ability to make small cutting boards and lazy Susans. Thousands of years ago that kind of small detail would have been near impossible.

Granite is a beautiful all natural addition to any improvement project inside or out. Granite is heat and scratch resistant as well as naturally bacteria resistant. It’s durability and elegant appearance make it a fantastic choice. It doesn’t matter how many pieces of granite with the same name you see, there are no two exactly alike.


Quartz is a manmade material engineered to have the look of granite or marble. Unlike granite, quartz has been popular here in the US since about 2004. Much like granite, quartz is a durable heat and chip resistant product. It is also much heavier and consideration needs to be taken when placing the stone. When quartz slabs are made, ground pulverized quartz is mixed with binder resins. Color pigments are added to created to various colors. The end result is a product that is 93% quartz and 7% resin.


Marble is a metamorphic rock. Much like granite, it has been used for sculpture and building. The color or swirls in marble actually come from impurities in minerals. For example, a green marble has high magnesium limestone, which results in serpentine. There are many colors, from White Cararra, one of the most well known, to pinks and greys. Marble is a porous stone and should be treated with care as staining and scratching are more likely than with granite or quartz.


Soapstone, much like marble, is a metamorphic rock. Soapstone is composed mainly of talc, but also like granite contains quartz, and mica. It actually has a soapy feel, thus the name. This natural stone is also heat resistant and like granite can be chilled to retain the cold.
