Granite is a common material used for countertops. It is also one of the hardest natural materials on earth.
Granite countertops are made of granite, a metamorphic rock formed from igneous or sedimentary rock. It has been around for millions of years and has been used in building construction since ancient times. Granite is usually found in large pieces and can be cut with a diamond saw to create slabs or other shapes that can be used for various purposes, including countertops.
