There are specific categories in granite stone in terms of colour and quality parameters that decide whether it is fit for exterior decoration or interior decoration or both. When it comes to brick red colour and steel grey colour granite, then it is mostly preferred as dimension stone and for some exterior decoration purposes. The reason behind this is its high class durability, hardness, colour and sturdiness that makes it ideal choice for exterior decoration as it can withstand any weather anomalies.
There are several quarries of steel grey coloured granite throughout the world but it is mostly quarried from India, China, Brazil and Scotland. As per the suggested theories of the geologists regarding the formation of granite there are only two processes that are evidently registered and accepted worldwide that are crystal fractionation and ultra metamorphosis. Although these were two different theories that were disseminated separately but in consideration of latest evidence geologists believe that both these processes occurred simultaneously that eventually formed the granite rock.
The entire colour scheme in granite stones completely depend on the chemical arrangement. But among all minerals that are found in granite, alkali feldspar or K-feldspar is responsible for giving it a grey colour. When steel grey coloured granite is quarried then no two stones of granite slabs are found similar in shade. This granite generally varies from dark steel grey to light grey shade. Even some of the slabs of steel grey colour granite contain white and silver coloured specks on its surface that gives pearlescent look at particular angle of the light.
The most common use of steel grey coloured granite is seen in the architecture of Aberdeen City that is mostly built on granite stone and used maximum of grey colour granite. There are some other architects as well that are elegantly constructed by steel grey coloured granite stone.
