One of the types of building blocks is the Iranian granite block. Iranian granite block, as everyone knows, is formed by the cooling of molten material. So around the volcanic mountains, this rock is found more than anywhere else. But this does not mean that granite is not available in other parts of the world.
Block granite of Iran is one of those building blocks with the most mines in the world and the country.
The minerals in the Iranian granite block are quartz, feldspar, mica, black talc (biotite), and amphibole. The color of this igneous rock, depending on the type of mineral and its amount, from gray to white, black, green, chocolate, red, and others.

Resistance to water penetration
Iranian granite block is one of the rocks with low porosity, which has caused it to have very little water absorption. So, if you spill water on it, you don’t worry about it.
A rock made of molten material cannot be expected to have low heat resistance. Accordingly, granite is widely used in construction. It has really good durability against heat, and you can use it in many different places without any problem.
Resistance to corrosion and abrasion
If you have used granite in a place that is in direct contact with chemicals or is exposed to heavy traffic, do not worry about the loss of stone because an Iranian granite block has a high resistance to abrasion and corrosion.

Iranian granite block is a hard block, so the extraction and processing of this stone require machines and powerful machines, which has made granite more expensive than other stones. Granite is not a thermal and sound insulator.
Application of Iranian granite block
