Do you want to know the difference between Granite, marble and Quartz?

First lets start by defining what and where does this stone comes from.

Quartz

What is quartz?

Quartz is an extremely abundant stone/mineral, is found in places near volcanic activity (magma) or seafloor. Quartz is taken from the Earth but when it’s transformed to become a countertop it becomes an engineered stone. Combining 95 % of the natural stone with bind resin creates the perfect mix which  makes Quartz more resistant than granite and marble.

Also a fun fact that only  a couple know is that quartz is an essential constituent of Granite and other felsic igneous rocks.

So lets talk about granite…

What is granite? Granite is a natural stone, which consists of feldspar (60% of earths crust), Mica (sparkles in the rock), 20% of Quartz and amphibole minerals. Granite comes from crystalized magma same as quartz but the mix of the amphibole it’s what gives to granite the dark color generally. The word granite seen as where it comes from its the perfect description of what makes unique this rock. The word Granit comes from the Latin “Granum” in English “Grain” in reference to the coarse-grained structure of such a holocrystalized rock.

 

Marble

Another popular natural stone is marble, which is a metamorphic rock, composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals such us limestone and dolomite.

Since we already went over of some basics of each stone, we would like to make a comparison with the 3 of them.
