Granite High Grade
High-grade or top-tier granite is considered to be of the finest quality, due to the rarity of its appearance and its source. At time of publication, top-tier granite was selling for $60 to $100 per square foot. Generally sourced from places in India or Brazil, it has at least an average thickness of 3/4 inch or more. Top-tier graded granite has uncommon or colors, veins and patterns and/or noticeable amounts of hard or soft minerals.
