When it comes to choice, granite worktops are excellent. There are several hundred different stone finishes to choose from. There are of course less than with quartz, however with all granite slabs being completely unique, granite is the best choice for originality.
Granites from all over the world
Granite is mined all over the world from North Carolina in the United States of America to Guangdong in China. There are over 50,000 granite quarries in the world and it is this depth which has given us such an amazing range of finishes.
There are also some places in the world with unique granites. For instance, the curling stones used in the winter Olympics in Vancouver in 2010 were made from granite mined on the tiny volcanic island of Ailsa Craig 10-miles from mainland Scotland. This particular granite has a unique molecular structure which makes it elastic enough to mould and firm enough not to crumble when it strikes other stones. For granite worktops, mines in India, China and South America produce unique granites that can only be found there.
