Granite kitchen countertop slabs are manufactured from natural stone extracted from large quarries. The stone by nature is rough in texture, but once polished the surface of the countertop is smooth with great luster.

Another aspect that you have to take into account in the purchase is its origin, in the stores you will find two types of granites for countertops: national and imported. You can ask but you will surely identify them by the price.

These are the countertops manufactured with materials from foreign countries. Although they are imported from different places (Italy, Brazil, Norway, South Africa, etc), the best known and most commercially available are found in India.

There are many reasons why anyone would choose a granite countertop for kitchens, but first it is advisable to take certain precautions before the purchase in case it is not the material you need or does not match the furniture.

Natural stone has always been considered an exclusive material, so much so that in some cases it has been necessary to demystify the price factor. However, some stone materials take exclusivity to a superlative degree and the cost per square meter makes them elitist. Their high cost is conditioned by their inaccessibility at source or by a very low production that does not allow to cover the demand and that in many occasions has nothing to do with the quality of the material.
