Polished granite is the polished version of granite.
In Bedrock Edition, Granite attempts to generate in two batches in all biomes in the Overworld. The first batch generate 2 times per chunk in blobs of size 0-862, from elevations 0 to 60. The second batch has 1⁄6 chance to generate blobs of size 0-862, from elevation 64 to 128. Granite can replace stone, andesite, and diorite. In Java Edition, granite only attempts to generate twice per chunk, however, the blobs are size 0-862. Granite can replace stone, diorite, andesite, tuff, and deepslate.
Polished granite generates in some ocean ruins.
Granite also generate as part of large copper ore veins.
Granite can be mined using any pickaxe. If mined without a pickaxe, it drops nothing.
- Times are for unenchanted tools as wielded by players with no status effects, measured in seconds. For more information, see Breaking § Speed.
Granite is currently used only for decoration. It has the same blast resistance as stone, meaning it can be used as a substitute for stone when building.

- Granite rock comes from underground magma pockets that turned cold. It's often pinkish in color because of its alkali feldspar minerals.
- Diorite is another magma-pocket rock, but it has less quartz in it. Adding Nether quartz to diorite yields granite blocks.
