The related Granite and Marble industries are one of the oldest industries in the world, dating back to the time of Egypt. There are ancient major exporters of modern granite include China, Iran, India, Italy, Brazil, Norway, Canada, Turkey, Spain and the United States. Granite is one of the Stones that can be used both indoors and outdoors. 

Among its applications with uneven or polished surface, we can mention items such as stair treads, sidewalks, kitchen counters, floors, wall coverings, washbasins, kitchen sinks and landscaping. Granite is a Rock from the heart of the earth and is known as the inner igneous that has large grains (minerals). Granite colors are usually pink, white, gray and black. 

Internal igneous rock means that the molten rock inside the shell cools and never as molten rock. It does not go out of the shell. Gradual cooling of molten rock to form large crystals of a mineral that there are essentials in granites. Over time, the solidification of molten rock depends on its Chemical composition available within the shell, it makes different types of Minerals in different time periods form and change the final granite. Therefore, the grain size on granite fits how cooling is molten rock.

Granite stone is one of the most popular, diverse, and beautiful building stones in various mines in many countries, including Iran. One of the most well-known applications of granite is construction and civil engineering projects. Numerous researches and studies in the field of geology have shown that the Earth’s atmospheric conditions are very suitable for the formation of granite rock and therefore the planet Earth is the only planet containing different types of marble. Granite is a different type of igneous rock that is composed of cooling masses and remaining fragments of molten material and has a porous structure and contains medium, large, feldspar, cobalt minerals, and several different types of different minerals. Cobalt is one of the most important components in the structure of granite rocks and will lead to the creation of certain granulations in the structure of this rock. Granite is available in the range of pink, gray, green, and black colors in the consumer market and has dark or light veins depending on the number of minerals in its structure. Bartz and feldspar are mineral compounds that are effective in creating light veins in the structure of granite and other minerals and mineral compounds such as cobalt are the cause of dark veins in the structure of marble. Different types of granite due to their strength characteristics compared to other building stones, for paving corridors, stairs and crowded areas of an office, commercial, residential, medical buildings, metro stations, and railways will be used. Another common use of marble is the exterior of the building, stair treads, and kitchen counters. Due to its high resistance to abrasion, friction, and fracture, different types of granite are also known as staircases in the general population and are considered as test options for paving stairs in residential and non-residential units. This feature leads to a unique beauty in the structure of granite and will create an eye-catching harmony in combination with other elements in the desired space. • Long life Durability and longevity are some of the significant features and advantages of granite in the construction industry. • Heat resistance Heat resistance and strength of granite stone are among the remarkable features to use this stone in the construction of interior building equipment such as kitchen counters. • Resistant to water and moisture penetration The high resistance of granite stone to the penetration of water and moisture is related to the structural properties of this stone and is one of the most important reasons for its use in equipping kitchen facilities. One of the most important and main disadvantages of granite is the lack of thermal and acoustic insulation. Very high weight and increased pressure on the building and the possibility of falling off this stone in exterior facades are among the main disadvantages of granite in its various types. Granite mining in the world Asian countries such as India, China, Vietnam, Iran is the most important source of granite mining around the world. It is interesting to know that a wide range of beautiful and popular granite stones are found in the mines of Khorasan Razavi, Zanjan, and Hamedan provinces and Iran is one of the famous exporters in this field. Mashhad Pearl Granite, Birjand Green Lettuce Granite, Khorramdareh Granite, Hamedan Cotton Granite, Natanz Black Granite, Hamedan Tuyserkan Granite, Zahedan, Nehbandan Granite are among the most beautiful and famous granite stones mined in Iran. Granite is one of the building stones with a very high degree of hardness that is extracted from the mines in the form of stone blocks by the method of the parallel hole or diamond cutting wire, at a higher cost than other building stones, and for cutting and processing to factories. In general, it can be said that the high cost of extraction and processing of granite stone is one of the reasons for the increase in the price of this type of stone compared to other building stones.  This kind of stone has an appropriate price between stones and you can buy the best quality stone from Iran, one of the best stone producers in the world.
