Granite Vs. Quartz What is the difference?

Updated: Feb 24

Granite is a very hard stone and 100 percent natural. It’s mined from quarries all around the world, cut down to a manageable size, and then polished to a fine finish. The Granite is heat resistant, scratch resistant and stain resistant. The variety of colors is limited by what comes from the miners. You can't find colors like pure white in granite. But amazing natural waves and designs are available only in granite.

Quartz is slightly different in that it is not 100 percent natural. Instead, countertops are manufactured using 95 percent ground natural quartz and 5 percent polymer resins. Depending on the brand this percentage might vary. Some use less percentage of natural quartz to make the product more affordable. By doing that the product will become a little more porous compared to the brands that use higher percentage of quartz. Quartz colors are perfect for the client who is looking for a even pattern through out the slab. Every year the factories are innovating with more designs and colors.
