Why each granite slab varies in color
- The distance of the granite stone deposit from the surface of the earth decides the rate at which the molten lava cools down and forms granite. Generally, deeper reserves take longer to cool and thus form larger crystals giving them a lighter shade; while deposits at close proximity to the surface cool faster and are a little dark in appearance.
- Mineral composition- Apart from quartz and feldspar, other distinct materials like black mica and biotite give various granite slabs their unique textures and hues. Some stone slabs also contain rare metal deposits which give them distinct vein patterns.
