Granite generates in desert village armorer houses.

In Bedrock Edition, granite can generate as a part of coral reefs.

Polished granite generates in some ocean ruins.

Trivia[edit]

  • In real life, granite is an igneous rock consisting of quartz, mica and feldspar. Granite has different colors from gray to distinctive pink. The word "granite" comes from the Latin term granum, a grain, in reference to the coarse-grained structure of such a crystalline rock. The pink granite in Minecraft reflects its real life counterpart that has potassium feldspar in its composition.
