Granite is a stronger kind of rock. It is not only hard, but also not easy to be dissolved by water and not easy to be eroded by acid and alkali.It can withstand pressures of more than 2,000 kilograms per square centimeter;Irregular stone material cuts a machine to be inside the time of a few years, weathering action cannot produce apparent effect to it.Granite features the appearance of granite is also quite beautiful, often present white, gray, yellow, rose and other light colors, which dotted with black spots, beautiful and generous.Combined with the above advantages, it becomes the top choice of architectural stone.The stone at the heart of the monument to the people's heroes in front of tiananmen in Beijing is made of a piece of granite specially transported from laoshan in shandong province.In the mineral granule that constitutes granite, more than 90% are feldspar and quartz, among which feldspar is more.Feldspar often shows white, gray, flesh red, quartz is colorless or off-white more, they formed the basic tonal of granite of profiled stone material of ping yi.Feldspar and quartz are hard minerals that are hard to move with a steel knife.As for the dark spots in granite, they are mainly biotite, and some other minerals.Biotite proved to be more soft, but I did not weak ability to resist pressure, at the same time, they make up the weight of the granite, after all, few are often less than 10%, this is the material conditions of granite was particularly strong granite was strong, another reason is that it is of mineral grains close button, between each other is embedded in the together each other, often accounts for less than 1% of the total volume of rock pore, thus make the granite has strong resistance to pressure ability, also not easy to be water infiltration.Granite though it is born especially strong, but in the sunlight, air, water and alien stone pictures, such as biological long-term effect, there will be "rotten" out of the day, do you believe it?Many of the sand in the river is the quartz particles left after it is destroyed, and many of the widely distributed clay is the product of the weathering of feldspar in granite.But that's a very, very long time, so granite is pretty solid in terms of human time.The great pyramid of Egypt, for example, is made of granite and is thousands of years old. Although it has been somewhat destroyed, it is still quite durable compared with many other things.
