How Granite is Extracted and Processed into Countertop Slabs

Posted on 25 June 2013 by cradmin

Here is an interesting video produced by the Discovery Channel and posted by Quality Tile and Marble, a fabricator located in Grimes, Iowa. The video, titled “Granite – How it’s Made” shows the process of extracting granite blocks from a quarry. I then shows how the granite blocks are cut down into slabs for use in countertops and other projects, and how they are polished.

If you have never seen the process, the sheer scale of it will amaze. It is definitely worth a watch.
