granite (rock) (acid igneous rock, <igneous rock by composition: chemical>, ... Materials (Hierarchy Name))

 

Note: A coarse-grained igneous rock that has been subjected to metamorphic processes, formed by cooling of silica-rich magma below the surface of the earth at great depths and pressures. It is the most common intrusive acid igneous rock of the Earth's crust. Granite is commonly found on continents, but is virtually absent from the ocean basins. The term "granite" referrs to its visible granular composition. It has a visibly crystalline texture, is usually red, whitish, or gray in color depending upon its composition, is very hard and durable, and takes a fine polish. Granite is primarily composed of feldspar, quartz, and mica along with various other minerals in varying percentages. Granite is frequently used for buildings and monuments.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Het meest voorkomende intrusieve zure stollingsgesteente van de aardkorst. Het heeft een zichtbaar kristallijnen textuur, is meestal rood, witachtig of grijs van kleur, zeer hard en duurzaam, en kan fijn gepolijst worden. Het bestaat voornamelijk uit kwarts, orthoklaas of microklien, met een kleine hoeveelheid zuur plagioklaas. 
Spanish ..... La roca ígnea ácida intrusiva más común en la corteza terrestre. Tiene una textura cristalina visible, es habitualmente rojiza, blanquecina o grisácea, muy dura y duradera, y puede alcanzar un pulido fino. Está formada fundamentalmente por cuarzo, ortoclasa o microclina, con una pequeña cantidad de plagioclasa ácida.
