Answers to frequently asked questions.
What is the difference between natural stone and quartz?
Natural stone is quarried directly from the earth by block, it undergoes a finishing process of slab cutting and face polishing before being shipped to stone distributors. The character of natural stone is unique and one of a kind.
Quartz is comprised of 90-93% crushed natural quartz, plus pigments and polymer resin binders. Since it is hand made by man using color formulas each slab has an identical design.
