Granite – create from the power of the earth…
The name granite comes from latin “granum” meaning „grain“. Students in school already learned the expression
„feldspar, quartz and mica, the three I never forget“ – these are the main components of granite.
The granite we use was formed 10 to 15 million years ago from mostly molten material from the lower earth crust.
Granite was formed under the high pressure in more than 2 km depth with solidification of magma. It is therefore called deep rock. Only through the tectonic movement of the earth‘s crust and the weathering of the rock above the granite bubble did the frozen granite reach the earth‘s surface.
