Although granite has been utilized by man for thousands of years, including part of the Great Pyramid of Giza, it wasn’t until the late 19th century that it’s beauty and durability really began to be put to use. This was mostly due to the strength of the stone and the inability of stoneworkers to work with the stone in the way that they wanted because their tools were unable to carve and shape the granite. The rock was just too dense! Following the innovation of stonemasonry tools, all of this changed. Granite became the choice stone for headstones and memorials, and over the years, multiple other industries began to the many ways that granite could be used.
