How Is Granite Formed?

Granite is formed through a slow process of magma cooling and solidification deep within the Earth’s crust over millions of years. As minerals crystallize and grow during this process, they create large interlocking crystals, giving granite its unique texture. The primary components of granite are quartz, feldspar, and mica, with their proportions determining the granite’s color and texture. Quartz, being the most abundant mineral, contributes to the hardness and durability of granite.
