The word granite comes from the Latin granum, a grain, in reference to it's coarse-grained structure. Granite is an igneous rock and is formed from magma. It has many potential origins but it must intrude other rocks. Most granite intrusions are emplaced at depth within the continental crust, usually greater than 1.5 kilometres and up to 50 km below the surface.
