Granite is a natural, igneous rock composed of quartz, feldspar, micas, and a mixture of additional trace minerals. Forbes explains they types and amounts of the different minerals are what give granite different colors, textures and patterns. It typically 10 to 50% quartz, which is semi‐transparent white, and 65 to 90% feldspar, usually pinkish or white. Generally, natural stone like granite is desirable because it has more character than man‐made countertop surfaces.
