Granite countertops are a distinctive presence in many homes today. But many homeowners wonder more about the material. What makes up granite? What is the density of the natural stone? 

What is Density? 

Density is the mass of a substance per unit measure. This number is typically expressed in terms of specific gravity. Specific gravity is the density of the rock or mineral as compared to that of water. These numbers are measured in grams per cubic centimeter. 


What is the Density of Granite? 

The density of granite is measured at about 2.6-2.7. Granite is an igneous rock made up of minerals such as quartz and feldspar. To compare with other stones used for countertops, its density makes granite one of the denser countertop materials that you can find.
