Where Granite Is Found

Granite is found in all continents and almost every country around the world and is generally the foundation of many orogenic swaths or mountain chains.  Most often, granite is the underlying rock which sedimentary (Rocks deposited as sediments from water) and other continental rocks rest upon it.  Granite is found in batholiths or large magma plumes that got into an upright position on the continental rocks.  But it can be seen in lots of other intrusive features such as dikes, sills, threshold and lacoliths.

Granite is found in almost every continent in the world. Most commonly and mainly it is found in mountain areas in the very below and underlying rocks. It is used in the making of roads, building materials, jewellery and tombstoanes.

It is a rock with minerals condensed, compressed, distilled and hardened. To name a few in the world, granite is found in the American mountains, India, South Africa and also Brazil.

Granite rock is mostly found in the mountains that are good places to see an abundant and plentiful supply is half Dome or most of the other mountains in Yosemite or Sierra's, Devils Post, or Stone Mountain in Georgia where it can be seen how they used to take and quarry granite out of the mountain for producing stone.

Most granite found on the major continental divides or mountain ranges and is formed by magma from the Earth and forced up over millions of years. The chemical composition of granite can alter and will have different uses based on its look for instance on kitchen counters to bathroom tubs.

One of the countries that you can find granite in a large mass: India

 India is a country which is blessed with high quality natural stones like marble, sandstone, granite etc. The nation is characterized as the home to unlimited resources of different types of dimensional stones and rocks; the stones are degenerated in throughout the country. This country has more than 11% export share in world's total stone export. It produces more than 27% of the total stones produced in all over the world. India is known as one of the largest raw stone material producer and exporter. India is a place of various types of dimensional stones which include marble, granite, sandstone, slate, limestone and quartzite that are widespread in every corner of the country. Indian monuments are supplied in more than 25 nations all over the world. India encompasses around 32 various varieties of granite for monuments and gravestones, more than 90% of them can be find in 3 southern states- Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. More than 95 percent monument factories are placed in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. Tamil Nadu shares around 75 percent. There are around 150 units that are located in Tamil Nadu. India is a renowned manufacturer of natural dimensional stones, owning excellent physical and chemical characteristics. You can find out the enormous opportunities waiting to be prepared in the stone industry. Stones and rocks like granites, marbles, sandstones, limestone, slate stones etc. are characterized and qualified as one of the best quality stones in all over world. In present date stone industry is recognized as one of the fastest growing aspects in the Indian economy.

The nation holds the number one rank as a largest granite and granite products exporter.

Now we have evidence that granite was found on Mars.

Nowadays researchers have stronger evidence of granite on Mars and a new theory for how the granite which isan igneous rock common on Earth could have formed on Mars, in accordance with a new research. The findings show a much more geologically complex Mars than previously believed.

For years Mars was considered geologically oversimplified and everyone thought that it is very simplistic, consisting mostly of one kind of rock, in contrast to the diverse geology of Earth. The rocks that cover most of Mars's surface are dark-colored volcanic rocks, called basalt, a type of rock also found on Earth throughout Hawaii for instance.

But earlier this year, the Mars Curiosity rover surprised scientists and researchers by discovering soils with a composition similar to granite, a light-colored, common igneous rock. No one guessed what to make of the discovery because it was limited to one site on Mars.

The new study encourages the evidence for granite on Mars by using remote sensing methods with infrared spectroscopy to survey and check a large volcano on Mars that was active for billions of years. This volcano is dust-free, making it ideal for the research. Most volcanoes on Mars are covered with dust, but this volcano is being sand-blasted by some of the fastest-moving sand dunes on Mars, sweeping away any soil and dirt that might fall on the volcano. Inside, the research team discovered rich deposits of feldspar, which came as a surprise.
