What Are Quartz Countertops Made Of?

Quartz has become incredibly popular in home design within the past few decades. Many people choose quartz because of its extreme durability, non-porous surface, zero-maintenance nature and wide array of available colors.

But what is quartz made of? These countertops are actually constructed using a man-made engineered stone. 90 percent ground quartz, a naturally hard mineral) and 10% resins, polymers, and pigments are combined to create quartz countertops. The color and pattern of the material depends on how the quartz is ground. Coarsely ground quartz gives these countertops a flecked appearance, while finely-ground quartz produces a smoother look.

Quartz is the second most abundant material in the earth’s crust, and many brands use certified green processes in their mining and manufacturing to ensure a minimal environmental impact.
