What is Granite?

Granite is a coarse-grained igneous rock composed primarily of quartz and feldspars, with trace amounts of mica. It’s formed when liquid magma cools in the ground, creating a substance that resembles the durability of a diamond. Granite typically features an impressive display of colors and patterns and is, by far, the most common rock found in the Earth’s outer crust. Due to its appearance, durability and weight, polished granite is an excellent material to use on kitchen countertops!

Granite Countertops FAQs

Is it hard to clean spills off of granite countertops?

Not at all, as cleaning granite countertops is no harder than cleaning standard wooden countertops. Using a mixture of mild soap and water, or ammonia-free window cleaner, you can keep your granite countertops clean and sparkling for years to come. If you do see staining, which is rare for well-sealed granite, you can use a mixture of mild soap and plain water in order to remove this stain. Repeat as many times as necessary until the stain is removed entirely.

Do granite countertops chip or crack easily?

If properly taken care of, granite countertops almost never crack. In order to avoid cracks or chips on your countertop, never sit on the very edge of a granite countertop. Additionally, minimize heat exposure to the granite. When cooking, always set hot pans and pots on pot holders or use a trivet. While granite is very heat resistant, extreme changes in temperature can result in weakening. The shock caused by a hot pan or pot can shock the cold stone, which over time can weaken it and cause it to crack. If you do see a crack, contact the professionals at Fox Granite for granite countertop repair. Without immediate repair, cracks in a granite countertop will continue to spread, and eventually, a portion of the stone will break off entirely.

How is granite formed?

Formed under the earth’s surface, granite is the product of crystallization of once molten material under conditions of extreme heat and pressure over millions of years. Under very high temperatures, the solid rock will begin to melt, and then water will cool it. During this slow cooling process, the larger crystals will grow large enough to be visible, and then these crystals are harvested to create countertops, tables, and other granite using furniture.

Why is my new granite countertop already cracked?

Granite, which features a crystalline structure, often times has natural fissures within its composition that may look like cracks, but these are not defects. These fissures are formed over millions of years and do not in any way impair the durability or function of the stone. Many experienced in granite look for these fissures for their countertops as they find that they add to the natural beauty of the stone.

Will knives scratch my granite countertops?

True granite, as provided by Fox Granite Countertops, cannot be scratched using a standard kitchen knife. Granite is one of the hardest materials on earth. Within the Mohs Hardness Scale, used to identify the hardness of minerals, diamond (hardest materials on earth) scores a 10, while granite scores a 7. Based on the Mohs Hardness Scale, a knife will only be able to scratch something of a 5.5 or under.

Should I use my granite countertops as a cutting board?

While knives won’t damage your granite countertops, granite countertops will dull or destroy your kitchen knives. If you think of the Mohs Hardness Scale as a “which one wins”, a granite countertop will easily beat out your kitchen knives and result in damage to your favorite cooking tools.
