Granite is a light-colored igneous rock with grains large enough to be visible with the unaided eye. It forms from the slow crystallization of magma below Earth’s surface. This stone is composed mainly of quartz and feldspar with minor amounts of mica, amphiboles, and other minerals. This mineral composition usually gives granite a red, pink, gray, or white color with dark mineral grains visible throughout the rock.
Granite stone price description:
The price of granite stones depends on the following factors:
1 – Quality and stone analysis
The most important parameter of rock quality is the physical and chemical analysis of the rock. And the higher the quality of stone analysis, the higher the price
2 – Different colors and designs
Granite stones are less diverse than other building stones. The more special and stylish the stone, the higher the price.
3 – Diameter and dimensions of stone
Granite stones are mostly used in paving and facade. So the diameter or the thickness of the stone is very important. Because the paving should have high compressive strength. The rock face must be of a good thickness to scop the rock. Stone dimensions also have a decisive role in determining the price of stone. The larger the size of the stone, the higher the price.
4 – Precise stone sort
Granite stones are more uniform than other building stones. There are black spots in this type of stone, which are sorted by the presence of these spots.
5 – Type of stone processing
The type of stone processing plays a decisive role in the price of stone. The precision in cutting and grinding the stone, the amount of stone and polish will affect the price of the stone.
