OTTAWA - Nov. 9, 2016 - PRLog -- Granite countertops Ottawa granite store manager George Carepa, tells us "Granite is not what people think, most granite countertops are not from natural rock formations & are in fact fake rock!" This came as quite a surprise to me and probably to a lot of people.

Granite Countertops-Ottawa Granite Stores Sell Fakes
Thats right, George at Best of Best Marble & Granite Ottawa sells far more artificial granite than natural granite and most shops do. Natural granite is apparently a common felsic intrusive igneous rock that is granular in texture. Natural granites are mostly white, pink, or gray in color, varying by their mineralogy. The word "granite" comes from the Latin granum, a grain, referring to the coarse-grained structure of these holocrystalline rocks. By definition, according to Wikipedia, granite is an igneous rock with at least 20% quartz and up to 65% alkali feldspar by volume.

Granite Countertops-Ottawa Granite Stores Recycle Waste Materials
 But as George at Best of Best Marble & Granite (http://www.bestofbest.ca/granite-slabs/)  states unless you ask for natural granite, you will be looking at something closer to a polished epoxy concrete, often with recycled material. So it is greener ecologically speaking since it is utilizing waste materials like glass, metal, and rocks.
