Natural quartz, also known as engineered stone, is the fastest-growing countertop material on the market. Natural quartz countertops are 93% mined quartz crystals, giving them a natural depth and radiance without imperfections, cracks or irregularities. And they’re as practical as they are beautiful. One of the hardest minerals found in nature, the quartz crystals are combined with technologically advanced polymers and pigments, resulting in a luxurious, smooth, high-gloss material that doesn’t require sealing or polishing to maintain its luster. It’s incredibly durable, resists stains, heat and scratches, and is virtually maintenance-free.
