Should a granite countertop be smooth?
Considering this, why is my granite countertop rough?
Gritty, Rough, or Sandy-Feeling Granite Countertop. Grit on a granite countertop is usually due to poor quality granite which cannot be solved. However, when a granite countertop does feel gritty or sandy, it is usually a gold-colored granite. Often it is suggested that the slab just needs more polishing.

Most granite slabs won't have pits, although any slab of granite could develop a few pits over time. Pros will use an epoxy or resin adhesive for granite repair of pits, but they can rarely get an exact color match. Thus, the repair is always visible.
