About Quartz (Engineered Stone)
Engineered stone is 93% quartz material, with the remainder being a mix of resin, glass, dyes, etc. It is a manufactured product that is very hard, and resists scratching, chipping, and staining.
It is well suited to the same type of applications as granite; however, it is not suitable for outdoor applications due to its susceptibility to UV light. There is a broad assortment of colors available, including colors that are not typically found in nature. Because the material is “man-made”, the patterning is uniform and consistent throughout the slab.
Engineered quartz comes in polished and honed finishes.
