The difference between Granite and Marble
The difference between granite and marble is that granite is a highly dense material composed deep inside the earth's core while marble is formed from sediments under the seabed. Both granite and marble will solidify into stone after millions of years but the mineral composition of the two stones makes marble and granite react very differently to chemicals and various household and surface cleaners.
