Granite Industry

Granite is an established industry in India in general and a progressive industry in Tamilnadu due to his abundant deposits in some of the Districts like Krishnagiri, Dharmapuri, Madurai etc. According to estimates India is endowed with one of the best granite deposits in the world, having excellent varieties comprising over 200 shades. India accounts for over 20% of the world resources in granite. This study aims at providing ample information to the potential investors that would help them in preparing realistic business plan.

Granite is a product for decorating walls or interior space of buildings. It is now one of the most essential building materials for the decoration, durability and protection of the buildings.Because of its uniform texture and hardness, Granite is preferred for external use. It is more durable as compared to Marble and is economical in maintenance. Granite does not need re-polishing once it is polished and fixed at the desired place, while Marble needs polishing every year or at least once in two years. The granular formation and compactness of Granite makes it non-porous and non-absorbent hence more hygienic for the use in laboratories, kitchen, washrooms and other water exposed areas. Uniformity in texture gives better look to Granite and is thus convenient in its application at the desired place. Majority of the cities located closer to the sea, provide greater markets for Granite as it can withstand the weather effects (moisturizing) better than Marble. Usage of Granite in special work, mainly involved in the making and fabrication of sculptures, decoration items etc. is lower as compared to Marble. This is simply because Granite is a harder material to work on due to its compaction and silica contents.

Granite is an igneous rok which is formed from magma deep in the mantle of the earth (Pellant, 1990). Granite is created in large, teardrop-shaped underground bodies called plutons. The granite plutons are highly resistant to weathering. Because of this, the plutons slowly rose to the earth’s surface as the surrounding earth is eroded away. Eventually, the granite reaches the earth’s surface where a pluton either becomes a batholith or a stock. A batholith is an extremely large pluton visible from the earth’s surface. A stock is a relatively small pluton visible from the earth’s surface. All granite must contain quartz, feldspar, biotite mica, and plagioclase (Mottana, 1977). Other particles that could possibly be present in granite are magnetite, lilmenite, apatite, pyrite, zircon, allanite, tourmaline, muscovite mica, hornblende, pyroxene, and garnet (Mottana, 1977). When the amount of quartz is decreased, the granite becomes syenite. Granites with grains larger than 3 centimeters are called pegmatites (Pellant, 1990). Granite quarries are only formed on extremely large batholiths. Granites mined in quarries can be used for several different purposes. Examples of uses for granite include of tombstones, building materials, countertops, flooring, and paving materials. Granite is highly resistant to weathering because it contains biotite mica. Natural granite is typically white, light gray, pink, yellow, dark gray, and green (Mottana, 1977).

What is meant by "black granite"? To quote from the discussion in ASTM C119-95b Standard we learn the following
"Black Granites: dark-coloured igneous rocks defined by geologists as basalt, diabase, gabbro, diorite and anorthosite are quarried as building stone, building facings, monuments, and speciality purposes and sold as black granite. The chemical and mineralogical compositions of such rocks are quite different from those of true granites, but black granites nevertheless may be satisfactorily used for some of the same purposes as commercial granite. They possess an interlocking crystalline texture but, unlike granites, they contain little or no quartz or alkali feldspar. Instead, black granites are composed dominantly of intermediate to calcic plagioclase accompanied by one or more common dark rock-forming minerals such as pyroxenes, hornblende, and biotite. Such rocks, because of their relatively high content of iron and magnesium, are designated as ferromagnesian or mafic. An exception is anorthosite which, though commonly dark, consists mostly or entirely of calcic plagioclase"

The present quarry is proposed to situate at Soodhanur village in palacode taluk which is a reasonably developed area with marginal and socio economic development. The Granite deposits in and around area are for Black Granites eg, Gem granites , Dolphis granites have operating quarries which is the fast moving variety of Granite in the Market with the names K1 black, Z black etc.
