Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between Granite & Quartzite?


Whereas granite is an igneous rock found more abundantly than quartzite, deep in the earth's crust, providing the base for the many continents' sedimentary rock, quartzite consists of a larger volume of quartz than granite; under heat and pressure combined, quartzite is formed from sandstone and quartz, and with the amount of pressure undergone, empty grains of sandstone are stuffed with quartz. This means quartzite is actually harder. On the Mohs scale of hardness, from 1 to 10 with 10 being the hardest, granite measures in at around 6-6.5, and quartzite measures in at approximately 7.




Is Quartz the same as Engineered Stone?


Engineered Quartz it is also simply called Quartz. Engineered stone is man made with two major components: quartz crystals and resin binder. This allows to create different colors and uniform patterns.




Is Engineered Stone porous?


Engineered Stone is non-porous, more flexible and harder that many types of natural stone. Quartz engineered stone, is less heat resistant than other stone surfaces including most granite, quartzite, marble and limestone just to mention a few, but it is not affected by temperatures lower than 150 Celsius degrees.
