All of the natural stone provided by the following manufacturers are 93% crushed Quartz which is one of nature's hardest minerals. The Quartz is combined with high-quality polymer resins and pigments and then compacted under intense vibration, vacuum, and pressure into dense, non-porous slabs. These slabs are post cured, gauged to precise thickness, and polished to an enduring shine.
Quartz is one of the hardest components of natural granite. Quartz rates seven out of 10 on Mohs Scale of Hardness. The only materials harder are diamonds, sapphires and topaz. The quartz crystals are used to create a beautiful and strong surface that is highly scratch and impact resistant.
