If there is a question we get asked very single day it would be, What is the difference between Granite and Quartz?
Granite is an igneous type rock created from molten material (magma) that flows and solidifies underground. The natural swirls and pattern are created as the magma slowly cools and is mixed with the contents of the stone such as quartz and mica. Large chunks of the granite are mined from mountains prominently in Brazil and India and are cut and polished into slabs then shipped all around the world.
Quartz is an engineered material created through a manufacturing process that mixes approximately 95 percent of natural quartz with 5 percent polymer resins to create the color and bond. There are many brands that manufacture quartz slabs with each brand offering their own unique collection and color pallette.
