Granite is the best-known igneous rock. Many people recognize granite because it is the most common igneous rock found at Earth’s surface and because granite is used to make many objects that we encounter in daily life. These include counter tops, floor tiles, paving stone, curbing, stair treads, building veneer, and cemetery monuments. Granite is used all around us – especially if you live in a city
Granites Extraction Process
Granite is a natural stone that is formed together when its molten substances cool and solidify slowly in the depths of the Earth. Granite basically comes from the quarries which are the open-pit mines from which rocks or minerals are extracted. To extract the granite out of the ground, it has to be quarried and the granite which is typically a kind of rock, has to be cut into blocks. These granite blocks are then used in the monuments making process.
Monuments Making Process
Once the blocks are at the manufacturing plant, the blocks are cut into slabs of varying thickness by circular saws with industrial diamond tips. Slabs of granite are polished by automated machines that often use either large metal discs or abrasive bricks made of silicon carbide. Polishing the granite produces a gloss finish with almost a mirror-like appearance. The rough edges are finished and trimmed by trained craftsmen using traditional hammers and chisels. The monument may now be polished on the edges or left rough, also known as rock pitched, depending on what is required by the particular order.
