New Hampshire Sourced Granite
With New Hampshire being "The Granite State", it's not uncommon for us to get inquiries about using locally sourced granite in kitchen or bathroom projects.
Granite is an igneous rock with grains large enough to be visible to the unaided eye. It forms from the slow crystallization of magma below the Earth's surface. The granite found in New Hampshire has likely formed between 100 to 124 million years ago when the North American tectonic plate moved over a hot spot, pushing molten magma to the surface.
The ubiquity of the white, gray, and black color of New Hampshire granite can be seen in the majestic White Mountains, as well as in architectural examples throughout the state. Park benches, road curbs, and mailbox posts are some of the most common uses of the Concord Gray pattern. But when it comes to countertops, you won't find much (if any) granite sourced from New Hampshire.
This is largely due to the inability of local quarries to be able to produce the slabs that will be polished and cut for in-home use.
But plenty of our stone suppliers have colors and patterns that are similar to the granite you would find beneath your feet.
Whether you want to find a granite slab that reminds you of your backyard, or something containing vibrant greens or pink, our team at Integrity Stone can help you find the perfect slab for your project.
