Granite Countertops

Diorite

Formed millions of years ago under extreme pressure deep in the Earth’s crust, Granite is a mixture of crystalized lava and minerals.  The color and pattern that is specific to each granite piece can be traced to different origins.  For instance many stones come from Vermont, Wisconsin, and the Dakotas.  Others come from faraway places like Brazil, Africa and Italy.

After the slabs reach our shop, they are cut to meet any custom design.  Whether it is your dream palace or summer hide away, we will be happy to guide you through a flawless design.
