Granite Collection

Granite Collection

Granite is a common type of intrusive, felsic, igneous rock which is granular and phaneritic in texture. This rock consists mainly of quartz, mica, and feldspar. Occasionally some individual crystals (phenocrysts) are larger than the groundmass, in which case the texture is known as porphyritic. A granitic rock with a porphyritic texture is sometimes known as a porphyry.

Granites can be pink to gray in color, depending on their chemistry and mineralogy. Outcrops of granite tend to form tors and rounded massifs. Granites sometimes occur in ircular depressions surrounded by a range of hills, formed by the metamorphic aureole or hornfels. Granite is usually found in the continental plate of the earth's crust.

Granite is nearly always massive (lacking internal structures), hard and tough, and therefore it has gained widespread use as a construction stone. The word "granite" comes from the Latin granum, a grain, in reference to the coarse-grained structure of such a crystalline rock.
