In this particular case the glue that holds the granite parts together dried, got brittle and cause the different pieces to fall off. Water then leaks in between the seams of the different parts that constitute the countertop.
As you can see the metal rod that helps most granite countertops hold together and it's usually on the edge of the piece, got rusted due to the exposure to rain, humidity, air and sun.

Granite Countertop Repair by Radiant Stone Car

Granite Countertop Crack Repair - Radiant Stone Care, The authority on Natural Stone Care, Brick, Paver and Concrete in Southern Ca.
A common mistake most people make is not paying attention to the caulking in their kitchen sink. Caulking tends to dry up becoming brittle and break away.

Most of the cracks we repair are on the front of the sink. This happens because when the caulking falls off it's hard to notice that it is missing. Since the missing caulking is not visible because its out of the reach when standing in front of the sink the damage occurs and unfortunately, it is not until the granite cracks that damage is noticed
The damage occurs through years of water leaking through the area where the caulking is missing.

This type of damage is caused mainly by bad or missing caulking. Water sips through the area where caulking is missing or in bad condition and gets to the wood and the metal rod that is usually under the edges of the granite piece. This metal rod is used to strengthen the granite.
When the water impregnates the wood it causes it to swell and eventually rusts the metal rod. When this happens both the wood and rusted metal rod push up against the granite and crack it then break it.
