Building stones, counter tops and memorials.


Granites are commonly used as building stone as they are relatively resistant to weathering and look cool too. Countertops in homes are commonly made from granites, gabbros and gneisses (a metamorphic rock). Gabbros and granites are also used as headstone memorials to mark graves.
