Just how tough is granite?
Granite is moderately hard, rating at a 6-7 on the Mohs Scale of Relative Mineral Hardness (Onyx stones can fall into this range as well). It’s harder than gold, silver, copper, aluminum, iron, glass and steel. However, it is not as hard as topaz, titanium, emerald, hardened steel or diamonds.
#Sustainability - One of the things we take very seriously. We regularly visit the plantations and timberland where our products are sourced from in-person and have done so since the 1970's. We make sure that the lumber we are purchasing and selling to the public is ethically sourced. We visit these lands to make sure that they are following the Department of Agriculture rule of planting a minimum of 3 trees for each one harvested. #nowyouknow

With ‘Honest’ in our name, we make recommendations that your car NEEDS. We recommended this ball joint to be replaced multiple times over the course of 6 months. We warned this customer that if it breaks it will cause much more damage and will be way more costly than just replacing the ball joints. Well, unfortunately it did brake the axle, control arm and ball joint. Now it will cost nearly double to fix it rather than to have fixed it before breaking.
Reminder: our staff is all paid salary, not commission so all of our recommendations are for your safety and the longevity of your car. #coloradosprings#mechanics#balljoints#cars#automotive#mechanicslife#cosprings
#JHJFaves featuring staff favorites around the store: Kat's favorite is this Art Deco inspired pendant- "This pendant has so much beauty and grace packed into a petite adornment. The invisible-set rubies create a vivid sea of red behind the simple curves of diamonds. It can be worn on casual days or formal nights and will always be an eye-catcher!"
