Quartz is one of nature's hardest minerals on earth. Quartz surfaces consist of binding polymers and pigments developed for one purpose: to create a new material with its own depth and character and a unique aesthetic, suggesting a sense of enlightened luxury and an attitude of bold sophistication. With a cool, fresh, sparkling look, Quartz surfaces catch and reflect light, capturing the radiance of quartz crystal. Quartz countertops have unusual clarity and consistency of color, qualities which combined with exceptional strength and durability, offer great potential for use in both horizontal and vertical applications.
