Granite Tile & Color

Granite is a common type of felsic intrusive igneous rock that is granular and phaneritic in texture and consists of at least 20% quartz and up to 65% alkali feldspar by volume. Granite has been extensively used as a dimension stone and as flooring tiles in public and commercial buildings and monuments, and its inherent strength, abrasion resistance and superior weathering durability are likely to keep it one of the preeminent material selections available to today's architects. With increasing amounts of acid rain in parts of the world, granite has begun to supplant marble as a material for the sculpture and memorial monument. Granite blocks are usually processed into slabs and after can be cut and shaped by a cutting workshop.

Polished Granite

Polishing is the process of creating a smooth and shiny surface by rubbing it or using fine abrasives. A polished finish gives the surface a high luster and strong reflection of incident light, almost mirror-like.


Honed Granite

A honing process is similar to polishing, it provides a smooth, matt, satin-like and nonreflective surface.


Sandblasted Granite

A sandblasted / shot-blasted surface provides an irregular pitted surface by impacting sand or metal particles at high velocity against a stone surface.


Thermal / Flamed Granite

A thermal (or flameing) process to the stone produces a textured, nonreflective surface with only a few reflections from cleavage faces, by applying a high-temperature flame. This finish may change the natural color of the stone depending on its mineralogical composition, particularly with stones containing higher levels of iron.


Bush Hammered Granite

A bush hammer is a masonry tool used to texturize the stone. It exists in many forms from simple hand-held hammers to large electric machines. A bush-hammered finish, similar to a hounds tooth pattern, creates a rough, but uniformly patterned surface with impact tools varying in coarseness.


Brushed / Leathered Granite

To create a brushed finish (sometimes is referred to as a leathered finish), manufacturers gently brush the stone surface until it becomes textured and appears worn-in. The brushing process closes the stone pores which helps it to become more stain resistant. A brushed finish also hides fingerprints and water spots better than a polished surface. Like a honed finish, a brushed finish dilutes the color of the stone itself.


Hand Split Granite

Split by hand, nothing is sawn, not applicable for very all-large dimensional stones, one dimension large is okay like a column.
