Granite & Quartz is the most popular stone countertop material used in kitchens.  First of all, because it’s very handsome. Granite comes in a variety of rich colors: shades of green, brown, gold, blue, violet, and mauve, as well as almost pure black and almost pure white.

Another reason for its popularity is its endurance: granite is almost as hard as diamond. It’s practically non-porous. It means it will last long, unless it is exposed to some acidic liquids, like orange juice, for a long time, it doesn’t stain. You can cut on it, roll out dough on its surface, and then simply wipe with a damp cloth. Granite is expensive. However, instead of a slab, you can buy granite tiles, which are more affordable.
