The electrical properties of a sample of granite for the VHF range were determined with the use of a new simple method, in which the granite sample acted as a dielectric material in a parallel-plate capacitor. Conductivity, resistivity and resonance graphs are provided for the VHF range. A mathematical equation for the resonance graph is provided.
