Granite, Marble &other natural stone

Natural stone is unique in it creation each slab is different 

Granite: A visibly granular, plutonic rock, consisting chiefly of orthoclase and quartz with little quantities of plagioclase, mica and other minerals. Granite is nearly always massive (lacking internal structures), hard and tough, and therefore it has gained widespread use as a construction stone. The average density of granite is 2.75 g/cm3 and its viscosity at standard temperature and pressure is ~4.5 1019 Pas [1] . The word granite comes from the Latin granum, a grain, in reference to the coarse-grained structure of such a crystalline rock.

Marble is a nonfoliated metamorphic rock resulting from the metamorphism of limestone, composed mostly of calcite (a crystalline form of calcium carbonate, CaCO3). It is extensively used for sculpture, as a building material, and in many other applications. The word "marble" is colloquially used to refer to many other stones that are capable of taking a high polish.
