What Is Granite? 

Granite is a fascinating mineral that was formed by the gradual crystallisation of lava deep within the Earth’s crust. Its composition consists primarily of quartz, feldspar, and mica, giving it a distinct granular texture. Granite is formed when magma settles over millions of years, allowing mineral crystals to grow and develop, resulting in its characteristic coarse-grained texture.

Variables such as the depth of magma intrusion, the size of the granite body, and the cooling rate of the magma can affect the length of time required for granite formation. It is a remarkable process that illustrates how sluggish and dynamic geological forces shape our planet.

The diverse mineral compositions and geological processes that contributed to granite’s formation account for its entrancing spectrum of hues. For instance, the presence of orthoclase feldspar contributes to hues of red, pink, and brown, whereas a large quartz content results in lighter hues such as white and cream. Black granite is composed of dark-coloured minerals such as biotite or hornblende, while green granite contains amphiboles or green mica. Iron-containing minerals, such as hematite or pyrite, can give granite golden or yellow tints.

Different minerals combine to create the multicoloured or veined appearance of some granite stones. Each unique combination, in addition to the geological conditions present during the formation of granite, contributes to the diverse array of colours and patterns found in this magnificent natural stone. This incredible versatility makes granite a highly desirable material for a variety of applications, lending timeless beauty and elegance to any setting.

Granite Mines

Granite Quarry Identification and Block Selection

The process commences with granite mining and quarrying, wherein substantial blocks of granite are taken from the Earth’s crust through diverse processes. 

In the granite processing industry, granite quarry identification and block selection are crucial steps that lay the groundwork for the production of high-quality final products.

To ensure a steady supply of high-quality raw materials for processing operations, it is essential to identify the finest block suppliers from various granite quarries in India.

Several factors are taken into account when determining the finest block suppliers. We assess the various mines and inspect the blocks for colour uniformity, mineral veining, surface integrity, and obvious flaws. Preference is given to blocks with superior aesthetics and structural integrity.

Mines employing modern and effective quarrying techniques typically produce blocks of superior quality with minimal waste. Favourable consideration is given to suppliers who adhere to environmental regulations and employ sustainable mining methods.

As soon as the granite mines are identified and blocks are extracted, they are inspected for any defects or inconsistencies that may be visible. On-site, seasoned personnel scrutinise the blocks thoroughly, evaluating characteristics such as size, colour uniformity, mineral veining, and surface integrity. Each block is assessed according to its quality and suitability for additional processing.

Highlighted for further processing are specific blocks that meet the high-quality standards. The items are labelled with specific information about their dimensions, quality, and other relevant details. The blocks are then transported to the processing units for the next stage of granite cutting.

Once the blocks reach the processing units, they undergo another rigorous quality inspection. Skilled manpower meticulously inspects each block to ensure it meets the strictest requirements of quality. Only the highest quality blocks are chosen for further cutting and finishing, while those with defects or flaws are set aside

Granite Cutting

Granite cutting plays a vital role in the overall granite processing procedure. The process includes the initial shaping of the raw granite blocks using specialised cutting equipment, like a diamond blade or a diamond wire saw.

When it comes to granite cutting, professionals often rely on either a circular diamond blade or a diamond wire saw. These cutting tools are designed with industrial-grade diamonds, known for their exceptional hardness and ability to efficiently cut through even the toughest granite.


Granite Slab

Grinding, Granite Resining, and Polishing

Following the initial cutting process, the granite slabs are subjected to surface finishing to attain the desired texture and appearance. Various techniques can be used to enhance the natural beauty of the stone, such as polishing, honing, flaming, or brushing.

During the finishing process of granite slabs, epoxy resin is commonly applied to the surface, a procedure known as the granite resining process. This phase is particularly important for granite types with natural fissures, cracks, or voids. The epoxy fills in these flaws, strengthening and increasing the durability of the stone. In addition, the application of epoxy facilitates the creation of a smooth and immaculate surface before the final polishing stage. We use the highest-quality and most reliable epoxy to ensure the best results.

The final stage in the processing of granite, polishing, gives the slabs a glossy and reflective finish. The granite polishing procedure enhances the granite’s natural beauty by revealing its distinctive colours and patterns.

Shaping and Edging

For different purposes, the granite slabs might go through extra shaping and edging procedures to achieve precise measurements and designs. Part of the process may include cutting the slabs into smaller pieces, shaping them into tiles or countertops, and edging them for a smooth finish.

Quality Control


Throughout the cutting and processing stages, rigorous quality control measures are implemented to ensure that the granite meets the required standards for strength, durability, and aesthetic appeal.

Packaging and Shipping

This process involves granite packaging and loading into granite containers for secure transport.

After the processing is done and the quality control checks are passed, the granite products are meticulously packaged and prepared for shipping to their ultimate destination, whether it’s a construction site, showroom, or distributor.
