cq-quartz-editQuartz is one of the most useful engineered materials in the world. It is naturally very hard, making it particularly durable. It resists scratches and stains, and its luster and color give it gemstone qualities. Quartz is most ideal for kitchen and bathroom countertops, fireplace surrounds and other heavily-used surfaces, but should not be used outdoors.

Quartz is a chemical compound consisting of one part silicon and two parts oxygen. It is silicon dioxide (SiO2) and one of the most abundant minerals on Earth. Quartz is found in igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks, and it resists both mechanical and chemical weathering, making it a predominant mineral in sand and on mountaintops.

Quartz is valued for:

  • Its scratch- and stain-resistant nature
  • Its resistance to chemicals
  • Its non-porous nature
  • And its wide range of colors
