Therefore, in addition to widely used for interior, these materials are also often used on the work that has great structure.
Granite consists especially of quartz, mica, and feldspar. Granite with porphyritic texture is somewhile known as porphyry. Granites could be pink to gray, depending on the chemistry and mineralogy. Granite is a plutonic igneous rock, which occurs from the freezing of magma with acid compositions of depth from the surface of the earth. Generally massive and hard, textured porphyritic, consisting of quartz, ortoklas, plagioclase, biotite, and hornblende. Gray and black speckled green, greenish and reddish.
