Quartz - Man-made product, crushed quartz mixed with additives, extremely hard, durable, scratch resistant, non porous surface, stain resistant, not heat resistant

Quartz is an abundant mineral on our planet. Quartz, the mineral, by itself is not stone. Stone is made up of one or more minerals. When we talk about “Quartz”, also known as engineered stone or man-made stone, it is not solid quartz but is predominantly the natural mineral quartz (90% or more) that is crushed, mixed, and bonded with additives such as resin, cement and color additives. Thus, it is created and made by man using the mineral quartz and additives that give each “color” it’s unique look. In general, quartz is typically stronger in flexibility and hardness and less porous than natural stone, but not in all cases. Its resin and other binding agents will continue to harden over time and this eventually leads to loss of flexural strength over time. Because the resins and additives are not UVA stable, quartz should not be used outdoors. Heat can damage Quartz because of the additives. Therefore pots should not be placed directly on the surface of any Quartz countertop. Quartz is durable and can be used for countertops, vanities, and desktops.
