It's no surprise that granite has become the most in-demand material for kitchen countertops. The natural stone is durable and has a classic beauty that looks great in any style of home. While the decision to use granite may be simple, choosing among the many color options can be daunting. Granite is available in thousands of colors, which are typically grouped into 10 basic categories -- beige, black, blue, brown, burgundy, gray, green, red, yellow, and white.
Granite is an igneous rock that is it is formed by solidification of molten magma, consisting mainly of quartz and feldspars, a group of crystalline minerals. The color of the prevailing feldspars and streaks of various minerals determines the color of granite and its elegant and shiny look.
