Granite Vs. Sandstone Weathering eHow

Granite is extremely hard and less affected by the freeze-thaw cycle, the forces of abrasion and the surface exfoliation processes that are all a part of physical weathering. A gravestone made of granite will therefore resist fracturing, cracking and chipping longer than a sandstone

The Density of Common Rocks and Minerals ThoughtCo

Jan 23, 2020· This is measured either as a decimal between 0 and 1 or as a percentage. In crystalline rocks like granite, which have tight, interlocking mineral grains, porosity is normally quite low (less than 1 percent). On the other end of the spectrum is sandstone, with its large, individual sand grains. Its porosity can reach 10 percent to 35 percent.
