Quartz is a common mineral, is the product of the two most prevalent elements in the earth's crust: silicon and oxygen. Quartz can be found as giant crystals or small grains, and is the main component of most types of sand. It is the hardest common mineral, and for this reason is often used in the making of sandpaper, grindstones, polishers, and industrial cleaners. Though quartz is clear and glassy in its large crystal form, called rock quartz, it also can be found in several shades of coloration, the most familiar being rose quartz (pink), smoky quartz (brown), and amethyst (purple).
Quartz has its own special features and best qualities of laminate and stone, quartz began appearing in U.S. homes just a few years ago after gaining popularity in Europe for the past decade. Today, quartz countertops are exploding in popularity.
Some quartz countertops are actually made of quarried slabs of the natural stone, the new engineered material is actually created through a manufacturing process that mixes approximately 95 percent ground natural quartz with 5 percent polymer resins. The result is a super-hard, low-maintenance, natural stone-look countertop available in a dazzling array of colors. And for many of the homeowners choosing quartz, those virtually unlimited color options are what sells them.
This durability also means that, unlike other types of stone countertops, quartz resists staining or corrosion from cooking oils, liquids and most household cleaning products so there's no need for periodic resealing of the surface. Quartz can be damaged by excessive heat, however, so homeowners should use trivets or heating pads.
Quartz countertops allow for a variety of edging options, just like natural stone. Unlike stone, however, engineered quartz also offers other design possibilities. Because it's more flexible to work with and is held in place using glue and epoxy instead of screws, quartz can be used on larger vertical surfaces like backsplashes and even shower enclosures, without the fissures and seams often all too visible with natural stone.
