What is the difference between Silestone and granite?

Silestone is a man-made product consisting of 93% quartz and 7% resin. Silestone offers a consistency in color that natural stones cannot offer. There are over 70 colors to choose from. Granite is a natural product. While the standard granite colors are mostly consistent, part of the beauty of granite is its variations. There are exotic granites that have a lot of veining and movement caused by the mineral content of the stone. The advantages and disadvantages depend completely on the quality of your granite and where it is obtained.
