Granite is one of the most popular stones for interior tiles. It has incredibility durability, perhaps due to its formation under extreme pressures and temperatures. An igneous rock, it is created by the slow cooling of magma under the surface of the earth, this results in small crystals of quartz that can be seen dotted throughout.

The tile's finish is a highly polished, glossy sheen. This is created by grinding down the tile to a flat gradient, then buffing the stone, removing up to 1mm of its surface, in order to create a mirror-like reflective tile. The effect is totally smooth, with no bumps or ridges. This finish brings out the beautiful colors within the stone, those green and gold flecks are displayed in all their glory.
