Natural Stone Characteristics:
All natural stone products are unique and will vary in colour and texture, often showing distinctive markings, minor imperfections and may include mineral deposits such as iron and quartzite. Sizes are nominal and may vary. Some paving manufacturers include the pointing allowance in the individual slab sizes whereas others include the pointing allowance in the overall pack coverage. The product images shown are as accurate as photographic processes allow and may appear differently in accordance with lighting conditions and screen calibration in addition to the natural variation occurring between batches. Images may not be a true representation of a particular product size, use or laying pattern. Descriptions provided offer a combination of the manufacturer’s and our own opinion of the product’s characteristics and features.
Granite is a coarse-grained igneous rock composed mainly of quartz and feldspar and usually can be pink to grey in color, however darker shades of red or lighter creamy shades can be seen, depending on its chemistry and mineralogy. Granite is a very hard wearing stone and tends to have a sparkle in sunlight due to the crystals formed during the volcanic heating and then cooling period. The surface is flat and even but is either bush hammered or flame textured to offer a non slip surface. It is often suited to contemporary style garden designs.
Granite is available in colour options from very light silver grey, through to darker mid grey and eventaully to the basalt black, although various minerals during the melting period can create pink, red or even yellow granite. Compared to other natural stone materials, granite has relatively even colouring albeit with flecks of colour highlighting the mineral content. Granite works well when contrasting shades are combined, for example silver grey and black basalt.
