GRANITES

Palladio

Stone type prefix: G


Geological Outline

Granites are igneous rocks, created by eruptive magma and molten minerals which have cooled under great pressure. The result is a rock structure where the close grain gives strength and a nearly impervious surface. Granites can be polished for decorative effect and the colour ranges from deep black to nearly pure white.

Traditional Uses

The strength and durability of granites leads to their use for paving, setts and kerbing, especially where heavy vehicular loadings predominate. When flamed or ‘picked’ the surfaces have high slip resistance characteristics. The wide range of colour and finishes make granites a favoured material for the manufacture of benches, bollards, plinths and for cladding facias, building exteriors etc.
