Quartz is a mineral found in many rocks. It is chemically composed of Silicon Dioxide molecules. It is the most abundant mineral on Earth, occurring in many different types of rocks. It is a very hard and durable mineral that can be used as an abrasive. It is chemically inert in contact with most substances, and therefore is often used in chemical reaction vessels such as glass beakers.


As a countertop material, quartz is versatile, durable, and beautiful. It is a manufactured product, made from natural quartz, resins, and pigments. This combination of materials allows for a huge variety of colors and patterns, including some that mimic the look of natural stone.


Quartz is a great choice for kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities, shower surrounds, and more. It is non-porous, so it is resistant to staining and bacteria. It is also heat resistant, so it can be used near stoves and ovens.
