ABOUT: Silica Sand is quartz that over time, through the work of water and wind, has been broken down into tiny granules. Commercial Silica Sand is widely used as a proppant by companies involved in oil and natural gas recovery in conventional and unconventional resource plays. The resource is also used in industrial processing to make everyday items such as glass, construction materials, personal care products, electronics, and even renewable materials. Industrial sand is a term normally applied to high purity silica sand products with closely controlled sizing. It is a more precise product than common concrete and asphalt gravels. Quartz Rock image Quartz Rock Silica (SiO2) is the name given to a group of minerals composed solely of silicon and oxygen. Found most commonly in the crystalline state, it also occurs in an amorphous form resulting from weathering or plankton fossilization.

AVAILABILITY: 19092 MT of Ochre is available in Kurnool.

ABOUT: Ochre is a natural earth pigment containing hydrated iron oxide, which ranges in color from yellow to deep orange or brown. It is also the name of the colors produced by this pigment, especially a light brownish-yellow USES: The use of ochre is particularly intensive: it is not unusual to find a layer of the cave floor impregnated with a purplish red to a depth of eight inches. The size of these ochre deposits raises a problem not yet solved. The colouring is so intense that practically all the loose ground seems to consist of ochre. One can imagine that the Aurignacians regularly painted their bodies red, dyed their animal skins, coated their weapons, and sprinkled the ground of their dwellings, and that a paste of ochre was used for decorative purposes in every phase of their domestic life.

AVAILABILITY: 6569 MT of Steatite is available in Kurnool.

ABOUT: Soapstone or steatite is a metamorphic rock. It has a large amount of the mineral talc. Steatite is softer than most stones. Because steatite feels like soap, people call it "soapstone". People have been making things out of soapstone for thousands of years. Soapstone has been a major component of ceramics used as electrical component insulators for many years. It is easily formed or carved into shapes. USES: In India steatite is mainly consumed in paper insecticide, cosmetic, fertilizer and ceramic industry. Steatite slabs are employed as linings for various kinds of stoves, ovens and fireboxes. Bricks made from crushed steatite, bonded with silicate for soda are used for the manufacture of furnaces in which crude lead bullion is softened before being de-silvered.

AVAILABILITY: 57604 MT of Quartz is available in Kurnool.

ABOUT: Quartz is a chemical compound consisting of one part silicon and two parts oxygen. It is silicon dioxide (SiO2). It is the most abundant mineral found at Earth's surface, and its unique properties make it one of the most useful natural substances. Quartz is the most abundant and widely distributed mineral found at Earth's surface. It is present and plentiful in all parts of the world. It forms at all temperatures. It is abundant in igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks. It is highly resistant to both mechanical and chemical weathering. This durability makes it the dominant mineral of mountaintops and the primary constituent of beach, river, and desert sand. Quartz is ubiquitous, plentiful and durable. Minable deposits are found throughout the world.

AVAILABILITY: 9965709 MT of limestone is available in Kurnool.

ABOUT: Limestone's most common use is as a crushed construction material, serving as a base for roads and ballast in railroads, but it also combines with crushed shale in a kiln to make cement and serves as an aggregate material in concrete. Limestone's usefulness stems from its strength and density. ABOUT: Limestone also is used as roofing granules, a coating that helps shingles resist the heat and weathering. Floor tiles, window sills, facing stone and stair treads are commonly made from limestone blocks. Crushing limestone to the size of sand particles creates a useful material for reducing soil acidity. Some animal feed manufacturers include limestone as a filler because chickens require calcium carbonate (found in limestone) to make sturdy egg shells. Dairy cattle also receive limestone as a feed filler when the milking process causes them to have a calcium deficiency. Finally, pulverized limestone makes an effective safety dust in mines. Spraying it onto coal surfaces in a mine increases the amount of light and cuts down on coal dust. Limestone's sturdiness makes it hold up through the cycling between freezing and thawing, as well as to other forms of abrasion. Limestone is easier to mine and causes less damage to mining equipment and transport vehicles than harder silicates.

ABOUT: Clay is a fine-grained natural rock or soil material that combines one or more clay minerals with traces of metal oxides and organic matterRock in this sense includes soils, ceramic clays, clay shales, mudstones, glacial clays (including great volumes of detrital and transported clays), and deep-sea clays (red clay, blue clay, and blue mud). These are all characterized by the presence of one or more clay minerals, together with varying amounts of organic and detrital materials, among which quartz is predominant. Clay materials are plastic when wet, and coherent when dry. Most clays are the result of weathering. of clay is available in

Kurnool Uses: The use of clay in pottery making antedates recorded human history, and pottery remains provide a record of past civilizations. As building materials, bricks (baked and as adobe) have been used in construction since earliest time. Impure clays may be used to make bricks, tile, and the cruder types of pottery, while kaolin, or china clay, is required for the finer grades of ceramic materials. Another major use of kaolin is as paper coating and filler; it gives the paper a gloss and increases the opacity. Refractory materials, including fire brick, chemical ware, and melting pots for glass, also make use of kaolin together with other materials that increase resistance to heat SOURCE: https://www.britannica.com/science/clay-geology

AVAILABILITY 562377 M.T of Dolomite available in Kurnool.

ABOUT: Dolomite, also known as "dolostone" and "dolomite rock," is a sedimentary rock composed primarily of the mineral dolomite, CaMg(CO3)2. It is thought to form by the postdepositional alteration of lime mud and limestone by magnesium-rich groundwater. Dolomite and limestone are very similar rocks. They share the same color ranges of white-to-gray and white-to-light brown (although other colors such as red, green, and black are possible). They are approximately the same hardness, and they are both soluble in dilute hydrochloric acid. They are both crushed and cut for use as construction materials and used for their ability to neutralize acids. DOLOMITIZATION: Dolomite is very common in the rock record, but the mineral dolomite is rarely observed forming in sedimentary environments. For this reason it is believed that most dolomites form when lime muds or limestones are modified by postdepositional chemical change. Metamorphism of Dolomite behaves like limestone when it is subjected to heat and pressure. It begins to recrystallize as the temperature rises. As this occurs, the size of the dolomite crystals in the rock increases, and the rock develops a distinctly crystalline appearance.

ABOUT :Iron ores are rocks from which metallic iron can be extracted. It is one of the most abundant rock elements, constituting about 5% of the Earth’s crust and is the 4th most common element in the world. Iron ore is part of our every day lives and our modern world would look completely different without it. 98% of world iron ore is used to make steel, which accounts for over 90% of all metals used in the world. Steel is used in building for so many things, from cars, trains and ships through to the high rise buildings in our cities and the bridges that connect us. Steel is used to create pipes, cars, ships, engines, roofs, nails, nuts, bolts, tools, machinery, in building & construction, to make white goods, in manufacturing, food cans and much more. Types of Iron Ore – Haematite, Magnetite, Limonite & Siderite. Haematite: Reddish; best quality; 70 per cent metallic content. Magnetite: Black ore; 60 to 70 per cent metallic content. Magnetite is magnetic, and hence easily separated from the gangue minerals and capable of producing a high-grade concentrate with very low levels of impurities Limonite: Inferior ores; yellowish in colour; 40 to 60 per cent iron metal. Advantage is open cast mines ; easy and cheap mining Siderite: ‘Iron carbonate’; inferior quality; less than 40 per cent iron. Contains many impurities ; mining is not economically variable. However, it is self-fluxing due to presence of lime Hematite and magnetite are the two most important ores available.

    Pure silicon is derived from such silicon dioxides as quartzite gravel (the purest silica) or crushed quartz. The resulting pure silicon is then doped (treated with) with phosphorous and boron to produce an excess of electrons and a deficiency of electrons respectively to make a semiconductor capable of conducting electricity. The silicon disks are shiny and require an anti-reflective coating, usually titanium dioxide.

    Production of quartzite at 365 thousand tonnes in 2012-13 increased by 34% as compared to that in the previous year mainly due to increase in mines reporting production in Andhra Pradesh

      AVAILABILITY: 4,500 MT of Gravel is available in Kadapa.

      ABOUT: Gravel is formed of rocks that are unconnected to each other. While common perception of gravel is smaller rocks anywhere between one and three inches around, official designation of gravel includes any rock structures that are not connected to other rocks, even enormous boulders (Wikipedia). Gravel is found naturally, mostly in lake, river, and ocean beds, where the constant movement of the water and waves keeps the gravel from settling and fusing with other rocks; sand is a form of micro-gravel, being tiny stones worn down by constant motion. There are also gravel deposits on dry river and lake sites, which are usually covered by layers of silt and dirt. Gravel deposits are mined and sifted to create commercial gravel products, which are used in many industrial applications as well as construction. Where natural gravel is scarce, solid stone deposits and bedrock are mined and broken up by machines. Gravel is commonly used to lay beds for roads and foundations; loose gravel is often used on pathways and ornamental gardens. Smaller stones as well as lower-quality stones are often used in cement and blacktop applications, as it adds strength while being relatively cheap. Because of its many uses, gravel remains an important part of industry, and the United States is the leading producer of gravel worldwide.

      AVAILABILITY: 2,450 M.T of mosaic chips is available in Kadapa.

      ABOUT: Mosaic is an art which dates back to the Greek and Roman times when it was used to decorate temples and palaces. Nowadays we use this technique to decorate our homes, to make them more beautiful and more original. There are lots of different uses for mosaic tiles. They can be used indoors but also outdoors and in basically any room of the house. in the bathroom, for example, mosaic tiles can be used to create eye-catching wall décor like in this case. The mosaic seems to envelop the oval mirror.

      AVAILABILITY: 80,000 C.M.T of sand is available in Kadapa.

      ABOUT: Sand is a major ingredient of mortar, plaster, concrete, and asphalt paving. Bricks made of clay mixed with sand are harder and will bear a greater weight than bricks composed of clay only. Molds used in foundries for casting metal are made of sand with a clay binder. Sand is also used as a filter to purify water and as an abrasive. It is glued to paper to make sandpaper. Blown through a hose by compressed air or steam, sand is used as sandblast to clean the walls of brick or stone buildings, to remove paint, and to clean metal articles. In the pottery and glassmaking industries, very pure quartz sands are used as a source of silica (see glass). Similar sands are required for lining the hearths of acid-steel furnaces, because pure silica is heat-resistant.

      AVAILABILITY: 274 M.T of asbestos is available in Kadapa.

      ABOUT: Asbestos was nicknamed "the magic mineral" because its unique chemical composition and physical properties made it suitable for use in thousands of products from floor tiles to road signs, from sewage pipes to insulating mattresses. Historical records show that asbestos has been used by man for over 4,000 years; in this century it has been used in over 3,000 products including cement building materials, pipework lagging, insulating mattresses and rope, fire resistant insulation boards, sprayed fire-proofing products, floor tiles and coverings, water and sewage pipes, gas masks, friction materials for vehicle brakes and clutches, lifts and machinery. Boilers and pipework were lagged with asbestos products in hospitals, power stations and throughout heavy industry. Asbestos insulation products were popular in the shipbuilding and railway industries and in the dockyards etc. The Royal Yacht Britannia, built in 1952, was riddled with asbestos insulation which was stripped out upon discovery in 1980. Sprayed asbestos insulation containing crocidolite was used in the roof space of the House of Commons Chamber; linings of the ventilation ducts in the House of Commons were insulated with chrysotile (white asbestos). Asbestos products have been used on a large scale in British buildings for fireproofing, acoustic and thermal insulation, condensation protection and reinforcement in asbestos-cement products. According to The Final Report of the Advisory Committee on Asbestos, the use of chrysotile (white asbestos) was by far the most widespread in Britain. Nearly 40% of the chrysotile imported into Britain in 1976 was incorporated into asbestos cement building products, 22% was used in fillers and reinforced cements and 12% went into floor tiles and flooring. Other asbestos-containing materials used in British buildings were: sprayed asbestos coatings, asbestos lagging, insulation partition boards, ropes and yarns, cloth, millboard and paper, asbestos cement sheets and partition boards, textured coating, mastics, sealants, putties, adhesives, wall plugging compound, pipework and so on.

      AVAILABILITY: 10,200 M.T of feldspar is available in Kadapa.

      ABOUT: Feldspar is by far the most abundant group of minerals in the earth's crust, forming about 60% of terrestrial rocks. Most deposits offer sodium feldspar as well as potassium feldspar and mixed feldspars. Feldspars are primarily used in industrial applications for their alumina and alkali content. The term feldspar encompasses a whole range of materials. Most of the products we use on a daily basis are made with feldspar: glass for drinking, glass for protection, fiberglass for insulation, the floor tiles and shower basins in our bathrooms, and the tableware from which we eat. Feldspar is part of our daily life. Feldspar minerals are essential components in igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks, to such an extent that the classification of a number of rocks is based upon feldspar content. The mineralogical composition of most feldspars can be expressed in terms of the ternary system Orthoclase (KAlSi3O8), Albite (NaAlSi3O8) and Anorthite (CaAl2Si2O8). Chemically, the feldspars are silicates of aluminium, containing sodium, potassium, iron, calcium, or barium or combinations of these elements. The minerals of which the composition is comprised between Albite and Anorthite are known as the plagioclase feldspars, while those comprised between Albite and Orthoclase are called the alkali feldspars due to the presence of alkali metals sodium and potassium. The alkali feldspars are of particular interest in terms of industrial use of feldspars. Amongst the numerous rocks in which they are present, feldspars are particularly abundant in igneous rocks like granite, which contains up to 50% or 70% of alkaline feldspar. Granite, however, rarely is used for its feldspatic content. Rather, a whole range of rocks geologically connected to granite are used. Most often, commercial feldspar is mined from pegmatite or feldspathic sand deposits. Aplite, which is a fine-grained igneous rock with the same mineralogical composition as granite, also is mined frequently for its feldspar content. Basically, the two properties which make feldspars useful for downstream industries are their alkali and alumina content. On those elements we can distinguish three families: Feldspathic sand, Pegmatite and Feldspar. A further distinction can be made between sodium, potassium and mixed feldspars, depending on the type of alkali they contain. Feldspars play an important role as fluxing agents in ceramics and glass applications, and also are used as functional fillers in the paint, plastic, rubber and adhesive industries. USES: Glass: Feldspar is an important ingredient in the manufacture of glass and an important raw material as well, because it acts as a fluxing agent, reducing the melting temperature of quartz and helping to control the viscosity of glass. The alkali content in feldspar acts as flux, lowering the glass batch melting temperature and thus reducing production costs. Ceramics: In the manufacture of ceramics, feldspar is the second most important ingredient after clay. Feldspar does not have a strict melting point, since it melts gradually over a range of temperatures. This greatly facilitates the melting of quartz and clays and, through appropriate mixing, allows modulations of this important step of ceramic making. Feldspars are used as fluxing agents to form a glassy phase at low temperatures and as a source of alkalies and alumina in glazes. They improve the strength, toughness, and durability of the ceramic body, and cement the crystalline phase of other ingredients, softening, melting and wetting other batch constituents. Fillers: Feldspars also are used as fillers and extenders in applications such as paints, plastics and rubber. Beneficial properties of feldspars include good dispersability, high chemical inertness, stable pH, high resistance to abrasion, low viscosity at high filler loading, interesting refractive index and resistance to frosting. The products used in such applications are generally fine-milled grades. Enamel frits and glazes: Feldspar assists the enamel composition, assuring the absence of defects and the neatness of the end product: e.g. enamel frits, ceramic glazes, ceramic tile glazes, sanitaryware, tableware, electrical porcelain and giftware. And many other end-uses: paint, mild abrasives, urethane, welding electrodes (production of steel), latex foam, the welding of rod coating, and road aggregate. In the flooring sector, feldspar is the main constituent in the body composition. It is used as a flux, lowering the vitrifying temperature of a ceramic body during firing and forming a glassy phase. Surface tension pull the remaining solid particles together, giving a densification of the ceramic body. With rising temperatures the alkalis become more active and first dissolve the clay particles and then the free silica. In tableware, feldspar gives a good fusibility for a product without defects. In sanitaryware, the use of feldspar within vitreous ceramic bodies is used to facilitate the optimization process.

      ABOUT: White clay or Kaolin clay also called as china clay | white clay | white cosmetic clay has wonderful beauty benefits. Kaolin is a natural clay that is very very gentle on the skin and in India it is found in plenty in almost all the states. It is the gentlest of all the cosmetic clays and it does not strip the skin of natural oils like the other clays. It is also one of the main reasons that I love this clay. Due to it's mild nature it is perfect for using it on all types of skin and since it dries up firmly on the skin, it also increases blood circulation. When applied externally, it purifies the skin, removes black and white heads and softens the skin. Like most of the natural clay masks, a mask made with kaolin clay reduces oiliness in the skin gently, making it an ideal ingredient in face masks for oily skin.

      ABOUT: Barite deposit within the upper carbonaceous tuff zone of Pullampet formation of the middle Proterozoic Cuddapah Supergroup. One of the world's largest baryte deposits, accounting for more than 98% of India's baryte production. Barytes (or barite) is the naturally occurring mineral form of barium sulphate. Its main properties are its high specific gravity (4.5), very low solubility; it is non-toxic, and also chemically and physically unreactive Baryte or barite (BaSO4) is a mineral consisting of barium sulfate.[2] The baryte group consists of baryte, celestine, anglesite and anhydrite. Baryte is generally white or colorless, and is the main source of barium. Baryte and celestine form a solid solution (Ba,Sr)SO4.[1] The name baryte is derived from the Greek word βαρύς (heavy). The American spelling is barite.[2][7] The International Mineralogical Association adopted "barite" as the official spelling when it formed in 1959[citation needed], but recommended adopting the older "baryte" spelling in 1978,[8] notably ignored by the Mineralogical Society of America.

          AVAILABILITY: 1.5 Million Corundum is available in Anatapur

          ABOUT: Corundum is a crystalline form of aluminium oxide (Al 2O 3) typically containing traces of iron, titanium, vanadium and chromium.[2][3] It is a rock-forming mineral. It is a naturally transparent material, but can have different colors when impurities are present. Transparent specimens are used as gems, called ruby if red and padparadscha if pink-orange. All other colors are called sapphire, e.g., "green sapphire" for a green specimen.

          AVAILABILITY: 1.5 Million steatite is available in Anantapur.

          ABOUT: Soapstone or steatite is a metamorphic rock. It has a large amount of the mineral talc. Steatite is softer than most stones. Because steatite feels like soap, people call it "soapstone". People have been making things out of soapstone for thousands of years. Soapstone has been a major component of ceramics used as electrical component insulators for many years. It is easily formed or carved into shapes. USES: In India steatite is mainly consumed in paper insecticide, cosmetic, fertilizer and ceramic industry. Steatite slabs are employed as linings for various kinds of stoves, ovens and fireboxes. Bricks made from crushed steatite, bonded with silicate for soda are used for the manufacture of furnaces in which crude lead bullion is softened before being de-silvered.

          AVALABILITY: 54431 MT of Limestone is available in Anantapur.

          ABOUT: Limestone's most common use is as a crushed construction material, serving as a base for roads and ballast in railroads, but it also combines with crushed shale in a kiln to make cement and serves as an aggregate material in concrete. Limestone's usefulness stems from its strength and density. ABOUT: Limestone also is used as roofing granules, a coating that helps shingles resist the heat and weathering. Floor tiles, window sills, facing stone and stair treads are commonly made from limestone blocks. Crushing limestone to the size of sand particles creates a useful material for reducing soil acidity. Some animal feed manufacturers include limestone as a filler because chickens require calcium carbonate (found in limestone) to make sturdy egg shells. Dairy cattle also receive limestone as a feed filler when the milking process causes them to have a calcium deficiency. Finally, pulverized limestone makes an effective safety dust in mines. Spraying it onto coal surfaces in a mine increases the amount of light and cuts down on coal dust. Limestone's sturdiness makes it hold up through the cycling between freezing and thawing, as well as to other forms of abrasion. Limestone is easier to mine and causes less damage to mining equipment and transport vehicles than harder silicates.

          AVAILABILITY: 907MT of clay is available in Anantapur.

          ABOUT:  Clay is a fine-grained natural rock or soil material that combines one or more clay minerals with traces of metal oxides and organic matterRock in this sense includes soils, ceramic clays, clay shales, mudstones, glacial clays (including great volumes of detrital and transported clays), and deep-sea clays (red clay, blue clay, and blue mud). These are all characterized by the presence of one or more clay minerals, together with varying amounts of organic and detrital materials, among which quartz is predominant. Clay materials are plastic when wet, and coherent when dry. Most clays are the result of weathering. USES: The use of clay in pottery making antedates recorded human history, and pottery remains provide a record of past civilizations. As building materials, bricks (baked and as adobe) have been used in construction since earliest time. Impure clays may be used to make bricks, tile, and the cruder types of pottery, while kaolin, or china clay, is required for the finer grades of ceramic materials. Another major use of kaolin is as paper coating and filler; it gives the paper a gloss and increases the opacity. Refractory materials, including fire brick, chemical ware, and melting pots for glass, also make use of kaolin together with other materials that increase resistance to heat.

          AVAILABILITY : 90718 MT of iron ore is available in Ananthapur.

          ABOUT: Iron ores are rocks from which metallic iron can be extracted. It is one of the most abundant rock elements, constituting about 5% of the Earth’s crust and is the 4th most common element in the world. Iron ore is part of our every day lives and our modern world would look completely different without it. 98% of world iron ore is used to make steel, which accounts for over 90% of all metals used in the world. Steel is used in building for so many things, from cars, trains and ships through to the high rise buildings in our cities and the bridges that connect us. Steel is used to create pipes, cars, ships, engines, roofs, nails, nuts, bolts, tools, machinery, in building & construction, to make white goods, in manufacturing, food cans and much more. Types of Iron Ore – Haematite, Magnetite, Limonite & Siderite. Haematite: Reddish; best quality; 70 per cent metallic content. Magnetite: Black ore; 60 to 70 per cent metallic content. Magnetite is magnetic, and hence easily separated from the gangue minerals and capable of producing a high-grade concentrate with very low levels of impurities Limonite: Inferior ores; yellowish in colour; 40 to 60 per cent iron metal. Advantage is open cast mines ; easy and cheap mining Siderite: ‘Iron carbonate’; inferior quality; less than 40 per cent iron. Contains many impurities ; mining is not economically variable. However, it is self-fluxing due to presence of lime Hematite and magnetite are the two most important ores available.

          AVAILABILITY:  69853MT of Barite is available in Anantapur.

          ABOUT : Barytes (or barite) is the naturally occurring mineral form of barium sulphate. Its main properties are its high specific gravity (4.5), very low solubility; it is non-toxic, and also chemically and physically unreactive Baryte or barite (BaSO4) is a mineral consisting of barium sulfate.[2] The baryte group consists of baryte, celestine, anglesite and anhydrite. Baryte is generally white or colorless, and is the main source of barium. Baryte and celestine form a solid solution (Ba,Sr)SO4.[1] The name baryte is derived from the Greek word βαρύς (heavy). The American spelling is barite.[2][7] The International Mineralogical Association adopted "barite" as the official spelling when it formed in 1959[citation needed], but recommended adopting the older "baryte" spelling in 1978,[8] notably ignored by the Mineralogical Society of America.

          ABOUT: Calcite is a rock-forming mineral with a chemical formula of CaCO3. It is extremely common and found throughout the world in sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rocks. Some geologists consider it to be a "ubiquitous mineral" - one that is found everywhere. Calcite is the principal constituent of limestone and marble. These rocks are extremely common and make up a significant portion of Earth's crust. They serve as one of the largest carbon repositories on our planet. The properties of calcite make it one of the most widely used minerals. It is used as a construction material, abrasive, agricultural soil treatment, construction aggregate, pigment, pharmaceutical and more. It has more uses than almost any other mineral. calcite as oolite Calcite in the form of oolitic limestone from Bedford, Indiana. Specimen is about four inches (ten centimeters) across. Calcite as Limestone and Marble Limestone is a sedimentary rock that is composed primarily of calcite. It forms from both the chemical precipitation of calcium carbonate and the transformation of shell, coral, fecal and algal debris into calcite during diagenesis. Limestone also forms as a deposit in caves from the precipitation of calcium carbonate. Marble is a metamorphic rock that forms when limestone is subjected to heat and pressure. A close examination of a broken piece of marble will usually reveal obvious cleavage faces of calcite. The size of the calcite crystals is determined by the level of metamorphism. Marble that has been subjected to higher levels of metamorphism will generally have larger calcite crystals. Uses of Calcite in Construction.... The construction industry is the primary consumer of calcite in the form of limestone and marble. These rocks have been used as dimension stones and in mortar for thousands of years. Limestone blocks were the primary construction material used in many of the pyramids of Egypt and Latin America. Today, rough and polished limestone and marble are still an important material used in prestige architecture. Modern construction uses calcite in the form of limestone and marble to produce cement and concrete. These materials are easily mixed, transported, and placed in the form of a slurry that will harden into a durable construction material. Concrete is used to make buildings, highways, bridges, walls, and many other structures.

          ABOUT: Granite is one of the most popular building materials. It has been used for thousands of years in both interior and exterior applications. Granite dimension stone is used in buildings, bridges, paving, monuments, and many other exterior projects. Indoors, polished granite slabs and tiles are used in countertops, tile floors, stair treads and many other design elements. Granite is a prestige material, used in projects to produce impressions of elegance and quality. Some interesting uses of granite are shown below. What is "Granite"? The definition of "granite" varies. A geologist might define granite as a coarse-grained, quartz- and feldspar-bearing igneous rock that is made up entirely of crystals. However, in the dimension stone trade, the word "granite" is used for any feldspar-bearing rock with interlocking crystals that are large enough to be seen with the unaided eye. By this classification, rocks such as anorthosite, gneiss, granite, granodiorite, monzonite, syenite, gabbro and others are all sold under the trade name of "granite."
