Why some granite is more expensive than other?
There are different levels of granite. The price of granite depends on its rarity, pattern, colors, and availability of that stone. Location of quarries also plays important part. There are quarries all of the world and it makes it possible to satisfy almost any taste and preference in color, but it might be harder to find certain colors and patterns, and of course, there is transportation cost involved. Some found in nature more than others. There is also labor involved required to extract the stones. So it all effects the price of the granite. So higher price doesn’t always mean higher quality of granite.
