Quartz is one of the most abundant minerals in the earth’s crust and comes in many different shape, sizes, and colors. Physically and chemically, it is resistant to weathering and is formed in igneous rocks or environments with geothermal waters. It has a rating of seven on the Mohs scale of hardness, meaning it is one of the hardest minerals on earth and one of the most scratch and abrasive resistant materials on the market.
Quartz is an engineered stone, manufactured using a mixture of quartz and polymers. The strength and durability of quartz make it a popular and trusted material for countertops.
