General Questions

Granite is an igneous rock having a visible crystal structure. Granite is made up primarily of quartz and feldspar (which are harder than steel). These give granite the lighter colors, like whites and pinks. This background is accented by darker minerals, such as muscovite, black mica biotite and the black amphibole hornblende. This is why granite has a salt-and-pepper look.

Granite forms the majority of the earth’s crust and is among the hardest building materials known. In quarries, granite is cut using diamond because that is the only stone sufficiently hard enough to cut it. After granite is quarried, cut and polished, it can be used for Flooring, vanity tops, sinks, tubs, pedestals, benches, fountains, etc.

Granite is a very dense material made deep in the earth’s core, while marble is formed from calciferous sediments associated with the sea floor. Both materials turn into stone over eons, but the minerals in these two stones make them react differently to conditions in the home and outdoors.

Granite has small flecks and grains of different colors, and it has varying crystal sizes and colors. Granite also has veining, or streaks of different colored crystals. Marble is crystalline and is made up of white calcite. Marble is made up of far fewer elements than granite, and is much softer.

Granite has emerged as the most popular kitchen countertop material because of its natural beauty and durability.

  • The elegance of granite countertops adds value to homes
  • Heat, scratch, and stain resistant
  • Granite outlasts even the life of the home it is installed in
  • Very little maintenance is required
  • It is more affordable than many people think because of the abundant supply

Granite and marble are creations of nature that have a unique natural beauty that has been used in architecture throughout the ages. Since granite and marble are made by nature, each piece is unique and matchless. Customers who may not be familiar with these materials may expect the granite or marble they order to be identical to pictures or samples they have seen. Although sample stones are intended to be representative of the material, the granite or marble quarried at one time may differ slightly in color and veining from the sample. Moreover, even a single granite or marble slab will possess a certain amount of color variation from one end to the other. These slight irregularities are what will make your project unique and different from any other.

Marble is typically used for bathroom vanity tops, Jacuzzi tops and fireplaces. It is not usually recommended for kitchen countertops due to the fact that it is easy to scratch and acidic substances such as vinegars, ketchups, citrus beverages, etc. can affect it. Also, the high-gloss of the marble countertop may be partially lost as many chemicals etch its surface.

Granite, however, is considered the second hardest stone. Most granite is not subject to etching by househould acids or scratching by knives and pots or pans under normal use. It is also not affected by typical kitchen heat such as hot pans.

Sandstone pavers are a highly versatile product. They are formed over millions and millions of years and only grow better with age. When they are in their forming stage the minute particles that form sandstone are then bound together by clay, and silica. Sandstone is just as durable as cement is. To test pieces of sandstone just rub a piece of metal along the stone and watch the metal fade. That shows the strength of sandstone pavers.

Yes they can! Being a porous stone which hold facades of water, sandstone pavers are also suited for the indoors. They can be used for almost every interior flooring need such as indoor patios, upstairs balconies and living areas. Being a natural stone they will keep you cool in summer and warm in winter.

Granite is found across the country. Major North Indian states that are rich in granite deposits are Rajasthan, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. In South India Granite is found in abundance in states like Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh .

Because of huge distance between quarrying and processing centers of North and South India. The high transportation cost of granite from the North to the South or vice versa might lead to overall increase in the product cost. To avoid this, separate containers for North and South India granite variants are recommended.

In various shades, patterns and finishes, granites are available in the forms of tiles, slabs and blocks. Available in standard dimensions, granite products can be customized for size and thickness as per the requirement and application needs. Granite tombstones and monuments are also available.

Yes, this is possible, but with a few limitations. Granite variants with different colors occurring within a particular region can be clubbed, but from different regions may result in high transportation cost, which would reflect in the final price of the product.. For customers’ convenience, we have defined what all can be combined depending on where the quarries are located. Our efficient Sales team will also guide you in this regard once you indicate your requirements

Weight loading specification varies from country to country. For example, maximum container weight allowed in Europe is 27 tonnes, whereas it is 21 tonnes in the US.

For 27-tonne container

  • 2 cm – 400 m2
  • 3 cm – 300m2

For 21-tonne container:

  • 2 cm – 300m2
  • 3cm = 220m2

The standard formula for calculating weight is as follows:

Length (in cm) x width (in cm) x thickness (in cm) x 3/1000 = kg/piece
