Granite

The term granite comes from the Latin root word granum, meaning "grain".

The geological definition of granite is "any plutonic rock in which the mineral quartz makes up 10 to 50 per cent of the felsic components, and the ratio of alkali to total feldspar is between 65 and 95 per cent."

Commercially, any holocrystalline quartz-bearing plutonic rock is generally included in the granite group.

Marble

Marble has both a geological and commercial definition. Geologically, marble is a "metamorphic rock consisting of fine to coarse-grained recrystallized calcite and/or dolomite." 

Commercially, the term marble is used to describe any crystallized carbonate rock including true marble and certain limestones (orthomarble) that is capable of taking a polish. 

Travertine and serpentine, while not true marbles, are usually included in the commercial definition of marble.

To get the luxurious look, use it on an island or inset at a baking center. Marble requires constant maintenance, as it easily stains. Some new sealers retard staining.
