Granite - Granite Black Stone

Granite is massive, hard and tough, and therefore it has gained widespread use as a construction stone. Granite has been extensively used as a dimension stone and as flooring tiles in public and commercial buildings and monuments. Polished granite is also a popular choice for kitchen countertops due to its high durability and aesthetic qualities. It comes in many natural colors depending on their chemistry and mineralogy.

Properties of Granite



Physically commercial granites are Hard, Compact rocks with fine to coarse grains of metamorphic or igneous origin.

Hardness: 6 to 7 on Moh's Scale
Density: 2.6 to 2.8 Kg/cm3
Compressive Strength: 140 to 210 N/mm2
Modulus of Rupture: 15 to 25 N/mm2
Water Absorption: 0.1-0.6%
Average Wear: Less then 1%
Porosity: Quite low
Weather Impact: Resistant

Chemically they are igneous/metamorphic rocks composed of quartz, feldspar & ferromagnesian minerals like kriolite, chlorite, garnet, etc. A typical granite will have following chemical composition:

Silica (SiO2): 70-75%
Al2O3: 10-15%
CaO+MgO: Less then 0.5%
FeO + Fe2O3: 2-4%
Alkalies: 4-6%
TiO2: Less then 0.5%
Loss On Ignition (LOI): Less then 0.5%
