Granite can be found the world over, however, specific regions will sometimes offer their own unique granite with colors and captivating patterns that are native to those areas. The difference is due to the mineral make-up of the region. Granite is made up of quartz, feldspar, and micas. The color and quantity of these components determine the color, pattern and even strength of each specific type of granite. The mineral feldspar is the primary influence of the color and pattern of a slab. The characteristics of Brazilian geology result in uniquely colored stones, typically with dark green or yellowish tones.
