Quartz is one of the hardest minerals on Earth. Because of its strength and abundance, quartz is a popular and reliable choice for countertops. Quartz countertops are sometimes referred to as “engineered” or “man-made,” but quartz is in fact a natural stone. The amount of natural quartz in a slab depends on the quartz manufacturer & color.
Quartz countertops come in a wide range of colors, patterns, and tones making them a versatile option for many interior design styles. Quartz countertop colors range from solid, monochromatic hues to boldly patterned designs with intricate movement and veining. Many popular quartz designs showcase neutral or earth tones and reflect the look of granite, marble, or other stones.
