What is Granite
Nov 23, 2018

Granite is a volcanic eruption of lava and is subjected to considerable pressure to bulge in the molten state to the tectonic rocks of the surface of the earth's crust. Formed in the surface layer of the earth's crust, slowly moving to cool down. 

A type of igneous rock that is formed by the cooling of solid crystals of magma or lava containing silicate melt. When the molten magma cools and solidifies, the mineral forms and igneous rocks, like olivine and pyroxene. The most dense iron-magnesium 

silicate mineral is formed at the highest magma temperature; minerals with lower density, such as feldspar and quartz, form in the later stages of cooling. Minerals formed in lava can usually grow without any restraint and have well-developed crystal forms.
