Why Does My Granite Countertop Have Holes In It?

Granite has a crystalline structure (ooo, very Star Trek!) and so always has tiny pits. These are simply spaces or air pockets between the various mineral crystals. Granite sometimes has what look like cracks too – these are natural fissures. But unlike their planet earth equivalent, these fissures are not in any imminent danger of causing an earthquake in your kitchen – they’re not structural defects, simply a naturally occurring result of the immense heat and pressure that originally formed the granite eons ago. They are part of the natural and unique beauty of stone and won’t mess with either the function or durability of your fabulous countertops. 

If you have a crack or chip in your granite of a more man-made nature, call Stone Surface Specialists today at 801 856 0164 and one of our enthusiastic stone experts will whip over to you pronto and have it fixed in a jiffy.
