Granite is one of the most commonly used and widely occurring stones in the world. Granite is known for its properties of durability and permanently of its color and texture. Which makes it very versatile and gives it potential for use in many different types of projects.
Granite is an igneous rock which is found in very large quantities than quartzite. Quartzite consists of a larger volume of quartz than granite for providing the base for the many continents from the deep in the earth’s crust. From the combination of heat and pressure, the quartzite is formed from sandstone and quartz, and with the amount of pressure undergone, empty grains of sandstone are stuffed with quartz which in terms leads to quartzite is much harder. If we consider the Mohs scale of hardness, then the hardness of granite leads to 60 to 65 % whereas quartzite results in approximately 70 %.
Granite has a high abrasion resistance and therefore has good polishing and luster. It lasts a long time in busy places. Granite has a high compressive strength and for this reason it is used in paving of high pressure places. Granite stone are characterized by high compressive strength, abrasion resistance and low water absorption.
