Versatile, resilient and naturally beautiful, granite is an excellent surface for any project you’re planning. Granite is an igneous rock, which means that it was formed from molten lava deep within the earth’s crust. As the lava cools, it crystallizes under enormous pressure. It’s this crystallization that forms granite’s signature speckles of color such as golden browns, pale pinks, deep plums, romantic reds, exotic blues, greens, blacks and many subtle shades in-between — Pattern can be highly structured offering a uniform appearance or a pattern of lines, streaks, or veins.
Marble is a hard-crystalline metamorphic form of limestone dolomite rock, typically white with mottlings or streaks of color with exquisite looks. Pure white marble is the result of metamorphism of a very pure (silicate-poor) limestone or dolomite protolith. The characteristic swirls and veins of many colored marble varieties of mineral such as clay, silt, sand, iron oxides, or chert which were originally present as grains or layers in the limestone.
Marble is a natural material with great variety, depending on which classes you select and how it’s cut. Marble creates a lovely natural pattern and it is impossible to find anything as white in nature as white marble. Marble will patina over time giving it a well-loved appearance.
Soapstone is a natural rock found in several places around the world. It was formed from igneous rock in ancient ocean rift zones when those areas experienced significant heat and pressure from mountain formation and tectonic movement. The minerals in soapstone provides a soft, smooth feeling. The finished surface of soapstone feels like a dry bar of soap which is how it received its name!
Soapstone has a rustic and natural charm when compared with the urbane and elegant look of granite or marble. Soapstone is not as hard as granite and its colors range blue-ish gray, green, and black tons with almost pure white veining.
