What Is Basalt?

What Is Basalt?

April 29, 2016 Luci Carrillo Comments Off

Did you know? Granite is unique to planet Earth. Its stony sister, Basalt, can be found on Earth, Mars, Venus and Mercury, but Granite can ONLY be found on Earth.

Basalt cools relatively quickly in its journey from molten minerals to solid rock, which results in a fairly uniform color and pattern. Granite, on the other hand, takes its sweet time cooling, allowing gorgeous crystal pockets to form within it, creating a totally unique piece of glittering stone in each cut.

Of course, it all comes down to preference which you go for in your home, but if you’re planning on having Martians for tea anytime soon, make them utterly jealous by going Pro-Earth and having your Granite surfaces polished to a glitter.

Call Stone Surface Specialists today at 801 856 0164 to make those little green aliens even greener with envy at your glorious, glowing Granite!
