 What is Granite?

Granite is an intrusive igneous rock with large grains (minerals) easily seen by the naked eye. Granite colors are most commonly pink, white, variations of grey and black. However, it's important to note that some stones marketed as black 'granite' are in fact likely gabbro as granite must contain at least 20% quartz within a rock to make it granite.

Now, let's break down what exactly an intrusive igneous rock is:

  • An intrusive rock means that molten rock cooled within the crust and was never expelled as molten rock. The gradual cooling of molten rock is imperative to create the large crystals of a singular mineral that we see in granites. With time, there is differential lithification or solidifying of molten rock dependent on chemical makeup, this allows for different types of minerals to form at different periods of time and alter the final resulting granite. Therefore, the size of individual grains is proportional to how slowly the molten rock was cooled. Extrusive rocks cool during a volcanic eruption and allow no time for the orientation of minerals, creating a homogenous-looking rock with no discernible grains.
  • Igneous rock is a rock that has solidified from molten rock. This is in comparison to the two other major types of rock, sedimentary and metamorphic.

What Determines Granite Colors?

Granite is a conglomerate of minerals and rocks, primarily quartz, potassium feldspar, mica, amphiboles, and trace other minerals. Granite typically contains 20-60% quartz, 10-65% feldspar, and 5-15% micas (biotite or muscovite). The minerals that makeup granite give it the unique colors we see in different types of granite.

The relative proportion of different colored minerals in granite is largely due to the original source of molten rock that cooled to form the granite. If the molten rock was abundant in potassium feldspar, the granite is more likely to take on a salmon pink color. On the other hand, if the molten rock is abundant in quartz and minerals that make up amphibole, you will likely get a black and white speckled granite commonly seen on countertops.

  • Quartz - typically milky white color
  • Feldspar - typically off-white color
  • Potassium Feldspar - typically salmon pink color
  • Biotite - typically black or dark brown color
  • Muscovite - typically metallic gold or yellow color
  • Amphibole - typically black or dark green color

The combination of the minerals above makes up most of the colors we typically see in granite. Now, let's break down the distance types of granite and a quick overview of what gives them their color

White Granite

White granite (Credit:

White granite is a granite that is composed primarily of quartz (milky white) and feldspar (opaque white) minerals. The small black specks in the granite above are likely small amphibole grains. This could be due to a lack of chemical components needed to form amphibole, or the cooling process was not amenable to the formation of amphiboles.

If you see a rock that is 100% white, it is not granite but more likely a man-made rock that is created to look like granite or a quartz (quartzite) countertop.

Black Granite

Black 'granite' (Credit:

"Black granite" is commonly seen in commercial rock, but it is not granite at all. As said above, granite must be at least 20% quartz, which means an all-black rock is not granite. Most commonly, black granite is in fact gabbro, a mafic intrusive igneous rock similar to basalt. Gabbro is primarily composed of minerals pyroxene, plagioclase, and small amounts of olivine (dark green) and amphibole.

Pink Granite

Pink-colored granite is a result of an abundance of potassium feldspar within the granite. You can see small specs of milky semi-transparent quartz, dark brown/black amphibole, and opaque white feldspar. However, in a granite-like, the one above the primary mineral is potassium feldspar.

Black And White Granite

The above granite appears to have equal parts quartz, feldspar, and amphibole, making a speckled black and white granite. This is one of the most common types of granite and one that is most commonly seen used for granite countertops.

Red Granite

Red granite (Credit:

Red granite is a variation of pink potassium feldspar abundant granite, where the k-feldspar takes on a redder than pinker color. Also, you can get red coloring from iron oxide in hematite grains or inclusion within feldspar, essentially the same process that makes rusted metal ruby red-colored.

Blue Granite

You may find advertisements for blue granite countertops but this is also almost certainly not granite. One potential is that the rock is actually Larvikite, an igneous variety of monzonite and sometimes referred to as "blue granite" despite it not being granite. Another common alternative is Anorthosite, a rock that contains abundant blue labradorite and is sometimes sold as blue granite.

Green Granite

When advertised as green granite, often times the stone is actually a green variety of marble, which gains its green coloration due to inclusions of serpentine. It could also be a green variation of soapstone, mislabeled as granite. Granites are not abundant in green-colored minerals, but there are a variety of different rock types that do contain green minerals in abundance. One very unusual way to get a green coloration is the inclusion of amazonite, a green variety of feldspar.

Common Types Of Granite

Lastly, we'll go through some of the most common types of granite and what gives them the color they have inherited.

  • Santa (St.) Cecilia granite
    • This granite is known for its many garnets (deep red minerals) with tannish feldspar, quartz, and dark biotite.
  • Uba Tuba granite
    • Uba Tuba granite is a type of granite mined in Brazil that takes on a dark color due to an abundance of mica.
  • Kashmir White granite
    • Kashmir White granite is primarily composed of white feldspar and quartz, with distinctive red garnet crystals. This is not actually granite, but a metamorphic rock.
  • (New) Venetian Gold granite
    • A mixture of tan and white feldspar and quartz minerals with amphibole, mica, and garnets to add dark black and red coloring.
  • Giallo Ornamental granite
    • Some versions of this granite appear to be partially metamorphosed, bringing it into the category of a gneiss. The metamorphosis, a result of heat and pressure, gives it the swirl texture. This granite has very few accessory minerals and is primarily white due to feldspar and quartz.
  • Tan Brown granite
    • The tan here refers to a variation of feldspar, with trace amounts of potassium to give it a very faint pink color. The brown and black flecks are likely abundant amphibole.
  • Baltic Brown granite
    • This type of granite is very similar to the tan brown granite, but with larger feldspar grains.
  • Black Pearl granite
    • This is not actually granite, but a type of gabbro with pyroxene and amphibole.
  • Bianco Antico granite
    • This granite is primarily quartz, with pink flecks of feldspar sourced from Brazil.
  • Black Galaxy granite
    • This granite is actually a type of fine to medium-grained gabbro, black with golden flecks.
  • Volga Blue granite
    • This is actually an Anthrosite, an intrusive igneous rock that gets its iridescent blue color from labradorescence.
  • Absolute Black granite
    • Again, this is a type of gabbro and not granite, similar to the Black Pearl granite above.

That wraps up this guide to granite colors and hopefully taught you a lot about the different varieties of granites, from white granite to 'black granite.' Leave a comment below with your favorite.

Region and major cities where granite quarried include Udaipur, Jalore, Jhansi, and Jaipur. On the basis of color granite can be classified into- Black, Red, Green, Gold, yellow, pink, grey, and blue. BHANDARI MARBLE GROUP is the major supplier of Indian granite and marbles.

Is Indian granite good?

Indian Granite is one of the finest quality granite colors and types available. These granites are affordable, durable, strong, and beautiful. India is also the largest stone exporter in the world. India exports about 80 to 85% of local granite all over the world.

5 Granite Countertop Color Options for Your Kitchen

A kitchen with granite countertops can offer a high return on the investment when it comes time to sell. It is no secret that home buyers focus on the kitchen, and many are perfectly willing to shell out extra cash for homes with remodeled kitchens that use quality materials, such as granite. When choosing a granite countertop color, there are many more options beyond the common browns, grays, and tans. You can go simple with a black or white countertop or spice things up with colorful granite.

Here are five of our favorite granite countertop colors.

Black Granite Countertops: Sleek and Elegant

Well-lit kitchen with black granite countertop

If you want your kitchen to look elegant, install black granite countertops. Pair them with wood cabinets for a classic look, or match them with white or gray cabinets for a more sleek and modern feel.

Because they will darken the space, black countertops are best suited for rooms with large windows that bring in a lot of natural light. If your kitchen doesn't get that much light but you still want black granite, opt for white or light wood cabinets to keep the room feeling open and bright. Plus, black granite often has silver specks in it that will give you a little bit of light reflection in the space.


White Granite Countertops: A Modern Touch

White granite countertops promote a fresh, clean, open feel in the kitchen. They are excellent for creating a modern look, especially when paired with stainless steel appliances and sleek white cabinets. But white granite also can look great with vintage appliances for a classic vibe.

Overall, white granite countertops are very versatile and can fit with most decor styles. However, make sure you pay attention to the shade of the granite. Pure white granite is hard to find, as most stone contains colored flecks. If possible, take a sample home with you before purchasing to make sure its hues match with everything else in your kitchen.


Red Granite Kitchen Countertops: A Bold Choice

A modern kitchen with an island seating area

Red granite has a rich history. It can be found in ancient Egyptian pyramids and was used by Egyptians for building and decoration. Plus, it comes in many shades and patterns, ranging from bright pinkish-red to deep burgundy. Some red granites also have blue, white, or silver highlights.

Install red granite as the bold focal point of your kitchen. Keep other finishes neutral to prevent the space from feeling overwhelming. Opt for wood cabinetry in warm tones to complement the red color. And use red accents, such as in the backsplash tile, to tie the space together.


Green Granite: Beautiful in Traditional Homes

green granite kitchen countertops with dark brown cabinets

Because green is closely associated with nature, green granite can bring a natural and calming feel to a kitchen. Green granite typically has brown and gray undertones. You'll also often find interesting flecks, swirls, and patterns in it.

Green granite countertops can work well with white cabinets and shiny hardware for a fresh, inviting look. They also pair nicely with wood cabinetry, especially if the wood color has some cooler tones to complement the shade of green. Make sure to take home a sample of granite before committing, as different lighting can bring out different tones in the green. For instance, something you thought was a gray-green in the store might turn out to be more of a pea-green once you get it under your kitchen lighting.

Blue Granite: A Versatile Countertop

Valued for the beauty of its patterns, blue granite doesn't disappoint. Its patterns are divided into two categories: homogeneous and veined. Homogenous means the granite's minerals are evenly distributed to create a uniform pattern while veined means the minerals form swirls in the stone.

Most blue granites have blue and black bases. But some have gray, white, and brown bases. Their overall appearance can range from a navy blue that almost looks black to a light silvery blue. Such a color range allows blue granite to pair well with many cabinet colors. For example, a light blue-gray can look stunning with white cabinets in a contemporary or farmhouse-style kitchen.

Laying Italian marble needs highly skilled craftsmen Indian marble requires a lesser level of skills as compared to Italian marble.
Environmental concerns As it is soft, it has a nylon backing and is treated with epoxy resins, matching pigments, and chemical resin sealers No toxins or chemicals used to reinforce stone as it is harder
Where used High-end floors of living, foyer, staircases, tabletops. Not preferred in kitchens as it is very soft and can easily stain. Indian marble mostly used in bathroom walls and floors, kitchen countertops.
Durability Italian marbles are softer stones, more porous in nature, and can easily catch stains and hairline cracks. Thus, they are good for decorative corners. You can keep them in places where there will be minimum chances of heavy objects being placed or dragged. If you are looking for something sturdier, Indian marble is a better option. You can use them for floors and kitchen countertops which are more susceptible to scratches and stains. 
Price Point Italian Marble price starts at around Rs 350 per square foot. Indian Marble price starts at around Rs 80 per square foot.
Variety With the obvious import tag on Italian marbles, even though there is wide availability in the market, prices can fluctuate, and stocks may vary. Quarried locally, Indian marbles are widely available in a range of colors and price points. 
Appearance Italian marbles are softer and delicate looking. They also have a higher lustre, adding a glow to your home. Italian marbles come in slabs, with each slab having an approximate thickness of 18 to 20 mm. Indian marbles are harder and come with medium lustre. They can be thicker than Italian marbles, with each slab measuring up to 30 mm.

Pros And Cons of Indian Marble and Italian Marble

While the most significant advantage of marble is its aesthetic appeal, it does come with a lot of drawbacks.

  • Marble is a porous stone and is prone to stains. Chemically, it is made of calcium carbonate, a basic salt that can react with an acidic material. That’s why citrus juices can corrode the surface and make it susceptible to small pits. For this reason, granite is preferred over marble for kitchen countertops.
  • As marble is a natural stone, deeper layers of the stone could have fissures and cracks which may not be visible on the surface. As a result, the slabs you buy may sometimes come with a high percentage of wastage.
  • Marble is prone to scratches and heavy or sharp objects should not be moved on the floor.
  • Unless you have experts laying the stone, it may not be done perfectly level.
  • Over a period of time, marble can wear away and develop hairline cracks due to weight or pressure. This is more common in Italian marble. However, many people feel this adds to the charm as the stone ages.
  • Marble is more expensive than granite, vitrified, or ceramic tiles.

Indian and Italian marble: Pricing

Italian marble is sold at Rs. 350 to Rs. 5000 per Sq. at a number of price points. Italian marble slabs are very costly, mostly due to import duties compared to Indian stones. Their highly lustrous existence, however, causes Italian stones, despite their inflating price tags, to sell out like hotcakes. Indian marble pricing starts from as low as Rs. 50 per sq. ft and grows to Rs.250 per sq. ft thanks to Rajasthan, Gujarat, Andhra, and Madhya Pradesh quarries. Italian marble comes in a range of texture and color, but with a small range that includes white Statuario marble, golden Botticino marble, and light grey Carrera marble. For fans of marble, Indian marble has more than hundreds of colors. Ambaji marble, radiant white Makrana marble (Taj Mahal), onyx marble, and Indian green marble all make a major difference to Indian stone. These materials are highly popular for export purposes.

Indian and Italian marble: Installation cost

The cost of laying both marble types is more or less the same. But it is cheaper for the Indian stone. It falls somewhere between 100 and 300 per square feet. Laying marble is a labor-intensive process as it demands the creation of the base of cement and river sand.


Indian marbles come in a range of beautiful colors, such as white, pink, green, yellow, grey, and black. Compared to Indian marble, Italian marble doesn’t always come in a range of colors. Black, White, Grey, and Rose are the popular Italian variants. Italian marble, while Indian marble has a medium luster, has very high-quality luster, pearly and luminescent. Most Indian marbles have a more solid look and feel than the delicate, fragile look of Italian marbles. Italian marbles are commonly available in 18-20 mm stone blocks, but different thicknesses of Indian marbles are available and can go up to 30 mm. Italian marbles are available only as slabs that are polished. Indian marbles might however be polished or unpolished. Both forms of Italian marble stones are available in slab form only but marble tiles, slabs, and blocks come in the form of Indian marble. Italian marble is widely preferred and considered the best alternative for outstanding interior design since it is rich in luster or gloss.

Cleaning Tips: Indian Marble Vs Italian Marble

Marble is a stone that requires a high degree of maintenance to keep it looking good. Its porous nature makes it very prone to scratches and stains, and such imperfections show up all too well against a polished surface. Here are some maintenance tips:

  • Acidic substances like vinegar, lime, and tomato will stain the marble, so wipe up any spills immediately.
  • Use diluted organic cleaners that are environmentally friendly and do not contain any chemicals.
  • Seal the surface regularly with a sealant that forms a protective barrier. When water stops beading on the surface, it’s time to re-seal.
  • Every few years, marble should be re-polished with carborundum stone and tin oxide, to restore the surface lustre.
  • The water used for mopping the floor should not be hard or contain any chemicals.


  • Makrana Pure White Marble
  • Opal White Marble
  • White Sangemarmar Marble
  • Albeta White Marble
  • Albeta Beige Marble


  • Statuario White Marble
  • Calacatta Marble
  • Carrara Marble
  • Breccia Aurora
  • Bottochino Marble

 It is true that the most famous marble in the world comes from Italy, specifically the Carrara region. For this reason, many prefer authentic Italian marble. Italian marble is considered to be superior by many due to its purity, durability, and beautiful white color.


Why Italian Marble Is the Finest Marble in The World ?While marble is quarried in many countries around the world including Greece, USA, India, Spain, Romania, China, Sweden and even Germany, there is one country which is generally considered the home of the most high-grade and luxurious marble available – Italy.

 The Green Marble comes with a very beautiful pattern on green Colour. It includes different veins all over it which is outstanding. Green marble has a decorative look. Its wide variation in veining and coloring is considered its best trait. This stone is long-lasting and brings instant style into space.

Green marble is a marble that is crystallized and is naturally the color green. it is an excellent choice for someone who likes dark colors and it looks very elegant too. My personal choice, it looks good in dark wood houses. Green marble will never disappoint you!


Apart from the well-known deposits of granite in India, the country also has the biggest deposits of Green Marble (sometimes known as Verde Guatemala in the international markets). Its technical definition would be recrystallized, compact variety of metamorphosed limestone capable of taking polish, rock composed of Serpentine. The Indian green is a very compact and mature marble and is strong. Its hardness/strength is greater in comparison to other green stones found elsewhere. For example, Indian marble does not warp. Unlike some others, it does not fade in color over time and neither does it oxidize. Architecturally and aesthetically speaking, it has a soothing green tone, for example, an entire flooring in green marble looks great. Moreover, it provides an excellent contrast when installed in combination with different other colors of marble.

Green Marble Quarries

The green marble deposits are located in the mineral-rich Aravali mountain range. The exact location is in the districts of Udaipur and Dungarpur, in the southwest part of the state of Rajasthan. The deposits are spread over a vast area in both the districts consisting of many villages, out of which the Kesariyajee region in Udaipur district and the adjoining areas of Dungarpur district are prominent. These deposits were discovered in the late 70s and early 80s. The mineral deposit is huge & the area is mainly of hills and mountains.
There are a large number of quarries working in the region. The concessions for quarries are granted by the government for mining on a lease basis which normally lasts for 20 years. The lease is then usually renewed upon expiry. There are almost 300 quarry leases in the region of green marble.

Is Italian marble good for health?

These are good for health as it is a natural material. Italian marble is also a stone but there is a chemical mixed stone. Marble and granite are best for health and because they are naturally available and also because of their non-porous nature.


How can you tell the quality of marble?

Dull patches on the surface of marble indicate poor quality. The simplest way to check the quality of tiles is to examine the marble under light at a 45-degree angle. Some manufacturers use artificial colors to make the marble tiles look more attractive. You can confirm that by scratching the surface.

Q: We’re shopping for natural stone for our kitchen remodel. We like marble and were told that we “have to” go with Italian marble. We’re just wondering why. What’s so great about Italian marble? Is it really better than marble from other areas?

It is true that the most famous marble in the world comes from Italy, specifically the Carrara region. This is where artists such as Michelangelo and Donatello used Calacatta and Statuario marble to create some of the world’s most treasured works of art that have withstood the test of time. Italian marble is in high demand. It’s beautiful, durable, and brings with it a reputation for luxury. For this reason, many prefer authentic Italian marble.

Italian marble is considered to be superior by many due to its purity, durability, and beautiful white color. The fact that many buildings, sculptures, and other works of art made centuries ago out of Carrara marble still exist today is considered a testament to its longevity.

SQUARE FEET MARBLE,italian marble,imported marble

Part of the reason for the purity and durability of Italian marble is the way it was formed. Marble is basically crystallized limestone. When limestone (a sedimentary rock) is met with high temperature and great pressure, large crystals form and bind together to create marble (a metamorphic rock.) The intense heat destroys most of the impurities once found in the stone. Left behind are large sections of white marble with varied colored veins running through it. The color and boldness of the veins vary with the amount and type of minerals that are present in the limestone. This naturally varies based on the location of the marble, making every marble slab completely unique.

Another reason that Italian marble is thought to be superior comes simply from the rich stone working heritage of Italy. They were the first to streamline and perfect quarrying methods still used today. The Italians have set very high standards for quality control and do everything with precision. In fact, Italians are still thought of as some of the most skilled cutters and carvers in the stone world today.

Let's look at Carrara marble, for example. Since it comes from only one quarry in the world located in Tuscany, it’s in very high demand. This makes the price of Carrara marble higher than other marble types on the market. But be aware that since this marble is rare, it is also often duplicated, without the end-users knowledge.

Sometimes slabs will be cut and tagged as “Italian” when they may have been quarried in countries like China or Vietnam, then shipped to Italy for cutting and exported to the U.S. for distribution. The term “Carrara marble” should literally mean that the marble was quarried from Italy’s Carrara region, not just that it was cut there. So when you’re shopping, be sure you ask a lot of questions to confirm that you’re actually getting what you’re paying for.

How to Choose the Perfect Tile

The veins on the marble tile when arranged on the floor forms distinct patterns on their own creating a well laid out design. For a smooth and even finish you can choose marble tiles with a glossy finish and thin grout lines. This will result in a sleek floor pattern.

Even detailed patterns like pinwheels can be created using this type of marble tile.

The Best Ways To Use Carrara Marble In Interior Design

In India Which Flooring is Good For Health?

If you are in the process of choosing new or replacement flooring, it’s important to understand how each option could impact indoor air quality. Toxic chemicals in flooring can be a significant source of indoor air pollution. In addition to a product’s impact on your health, consider sustainability when choosing the floor. Flooring with natural material to improve our health. Instead of using any kind of artificial material like vitrified tiles and ceramic tiles we can use Indian marble flooring/Indian granite flooring.

These are good for health as it is a natural material. Italian marble is also a stone but there is a chemical mixed stone. Marble stone is used in flooring in the interior and exterior of the building except pathway and corridors etc-It is also used on wall decorations. From a health point of view, marble is the best choice because it has less negative or reflective energy than granite and vitrified tiles. Granite is very durable and since it has no grouts like tiles it is more hygienic and can be re-polished to clean it even more thoroughly.

Supreme Court Building
marble Supreme Court building

The Supreme Court building was constructed between 1932 and 1935 using several different types of marble. Vermont marble was used extensively in the exterior. The inner courtyards were made using bright white marble from Georgia, and the interior corridors and entrance halls are made from creamy white marble from Alabama.

Designing with Marble

Designing with marble means designing with color. While Irish Connemara marble is a serpentine green, other aqua terra "jasper" is a blend of icy blues, creams, and pastel greens. Red "malachite"--another marble with a popular trade name--showcases cinnamon to brick reds with brown-tinted creams. That's not even including the bright shades that marble can be dyed! Do remember that marble is a soft stone and easily scratched. Since it takes such a high gloss polish, it's a shame to dull it with unnecessary wear and tear. Marble is glorious in necklaces, pendants, and earrings, and probably shouldn't be used in bracelets or anklets. Ideal for tie bars and tie tacks, this stone should probably not be used for cufflinks or watch bands.


Here’s something interesting to think about. Many people do not use marble because they think it is too weak and chips away too easily. At the same time, we have marble sculptures that are thousands of years old. We have historical sites where the marble installed during construction has survived to this day.

This is what you are paying for. When you buy Italian marble, you are making a long-term investment. You will not have to replace your marble countertops in a few years because they chipped away too much. Good quality marble will outlast many other types of material easily. It becomes even more resilient if you apply sealant on the marble.
