Granites usually are classified as Igneous rocks obtained from molten masses or magmas. There is evidence that the origin of some granites may be attributed to regional metamorphism or pre-existing rocks. Rearrangement and re-crystallization taking place without a liquid or molten stage.

Granite is classified in (3) different groups as follows:

Fine Grain : Fine grain granites are those in which the feldspar crystals average about 1/16 to 1/8″ in diameter.

Medium Grain : In the medium grain granites the feldspar crystals average about 1/4″ in diameter.

Coarse Grain : The feldspar crystals, in course grain granites average 1/2″ and greater in diameter or several centimeters in maximum dimension. Coarse grain granites have a lower density.
