Default Granite?

hi there,
Can anyone tell me if granite is suitable for building a dome oven? Have a free supply of rough football sized peices which i can cut to shape. any good? i would think it would hold heat better than any fire brick.
cheers

It's controversial

here's an oven that was made out of granite blocks...

Lots of granite on the moon, huh?



Remember: Granite surface chips in intense heat. Google "flame finishing"

No to granite vs. firebricks sounds like the answer. Use it for the finish on the oven.
