Quartz is a natural mineral found in different types of rock. Once extracted blended expertly together with other composites such as polymer resin to bring out its natural beauty, and through a final formation process, the mineral is then turned into slabs to use for work surfaces. It is commonly referred to as an engineered stone.
The advantage of quartz over granite is that is can be processed into more uniformed colours such with mirror chips and patterns added, it can literally mimic any colour of granite, making this also an ideal choice for kitchen and bathroom worktops for those customers who are looking for that perfect colour match throughout.
