  • something having the quality of granite (unyielding firmness); "a man of granite"
  • Used in similes and metaphors to refer to something very hard and impenetrable
  • A very hard, granular, crystalline, igneous rock consisting mainly of quartz, mica, and feldspar and often used as a building stone

  • Granite is a common and widely occurring type of intrusive, felsic, igneous rock. Granites usually have a medium to coarse grained texture. Occasionally some individual crystals (phenocrysts) are larger than the groundmass in which case the texture is known as porphyritic.
