AN ART FOR A STONE
Granite is a natural stone that is famous for its beauty and strength. With more than 120 colours, India is known to produce the hardest and strongest granite. In India, granite is categorised as North Indian Granite and South Indian Granite. There are several granite quarries located in different parts of India and thus they have distinct colours too. The offered granite is ideally available in tiles and slabs for kitchen countertops, wall cladding, flooring and table tops.

Granite is a natural stone that is quarried in many countries around the globe. Granite and Quartzite are the names that are used interchangeably wherever stone tile and slabs are sold.
 True Granite is a porous, igneous rock that has any number of chemical compositions that include a quartz base.
 Quartzite is a metamorphic rock that has a higher percentage of quartz in its chemical makeup than granite does.
For the record, true quartzite is harder than true granite. But, don’t get too caught up in the name of the stone because regardless of which it is, geologically speaking, it has the same purpose and durability.
White Granite is harder to find than black or brown granite. All granite (and Marble) gets its name from the background color.
Some white granite slabs have veins similar to marble while others may have a spattering of freckles in either brown, grey, black or red and may include a sprinkling of blue throughout.
It is long-lasting stone, but it requires regular timely maintenance to keep its shine long lasting ever. It is strong and tougher than other natural stone. It looks very attractive and gorgeous after application.
Let’s discuss the use of marble and granite, and in the interest of “blog brevity”, we will focus on residential applications and set aside commercial uses for another day. We can begin with the science of the question. Granite is classified as an igneous stone that was formed from the cooling of molten materials beneath the Earth’s surface. Marble is a metamorphic stone formed by the alteration under pressure of igneous and sedimentary stones. In general, granite is usually harder and more dense than marble but in no way does that make it less useful as a residential stone.
An efficient way to discuss the two stone types in current residential design is by application. So let’s move through the home.
Tops
Firstly, distinguish between kitchen countertops and bath vanity tops. In general, granite is usually the better choice in the kitchen due to its inherent density, scratch and stain resistance. But please understand that granite is not entirely stain resistant and its lighter color values can show stain in the presence of aggressive agents such as red wine and ketchup. Marble, is less typically found in the kitchen, but can still succeed in this setting given certain parameters. A good example of a white marble that can perform in the kitchen is a very dense stone quarried in Danby, Vermont.
In a bathroom vanity application marble is generally more prevalent than granite. This is due to several factors not the least of which is the less demanding nature of the space from a technical standpoint. In most vanity application instances marble will present a greater range of fashion forward color values to the design team.
Flooring
Residentially, marble is more typical flooring than granite. The less austere visual presented by a flowing veined marble is fairly easy to incorporate into a design plan. In many cases a granite floor may appear a tad utilitarian for current flooring design trends. With that said, a few notes of caution on marble as floor covering. Client expectations should be considered when selecting a particular stone especially as it relates to overall color value, color range and required maintenance. A perfectly fine marble installation can be hopelessly compromised if the client has other expectations rather rightly or wrongly conceived.
Wall covering
Again, in the residential world, marble is more prevalent than granite as a wall covering. In particular, marble is a sound choice for bathrooms walls. As noted in the section on flooring above, while a wonderful selection of color, pattern and veining is available for the design team to choose from, care must still be taken to properly set client expectations. Of additional concern is to make certain that all aspects of water proofing are considered. This would of course be true of any stone in a wet area.
In conclusion, the title of this article, “Marble vs. Granite” is somewhat disingenuous. This is not a “zero sum” game with an “either or” solution to be advanced. Accordingly, reach out to an expert, like the professionals in our eleven showrooms, for the specific advice that will guide you to success.

Architects and their Continuing Education program, provider we offer a course, “Stone in Architecture”. One of the most significant talking points during the course presentation revolves around the selection of stone as an “art” rather than strictly a “science”.
