Sawtooth Granite is a very strong granitic rock indigenous to the greater Spokane area. Granites are formed by the slow underground cooling of certain magmas subsequently exposed by weathering and erosion. The unique texture of Sawtooth Granite comes from the distinctive ratios of medium-grained crystals including quartz, micas, and feldspars. Granite has been used for centuries as a building and decorative stone and is commonly employed in modern construction for its beauty and durability. Sawtooth Granite thin veneer is available in squares and rectangles, ledge, and random shapes.
