Granite is an igneous rock that forms from magma cooled below Earths surface. Why would granite have lager crystals than igneous rock formed from lava cooled above Earths surface

(1) Answers

because crystals in granite had more time to form as the magma cooled slowly  crystals that form on the surface are tiny because they cooled very quickly  the more time crystals have to form, the more likely they are going to be larger in size
