Quartz countertops are man-made engineered stone countertops formed by combining 90% ground quartz (a natural hard mineral) with 8-10% resins, polymers, and pigments. This forms a very hard granite-like surface. The appearance depends on how the quartz is ground: coarsely ground quartz produces a flecked appearance, while finely ground quartz produces a smooth look.
Extremely hard and durable; glossy sheen; non-porous and stain-and-crack resistant. Quartz does not require sealing or resealing; wide range of colours; easy to clean with mild soap, water, and a soft cloth.
