What are granite and quartz made up of?

 

GRANITE

Granite is a 100% pure natural stone. ­­­ It’s formed deep in the Earth from compressed quartz, potassium feldspar, mica, amphiboles, and traces of other minerals. It is then quarried into the sheets you see in our yard! We seal our granite in our factory to ensure it is non-porous. This means no liquid passes through it!

QUARTZ

Quartz is one of the hardest materials known to man. It’s fabricated from natural quartz. Further material like crushed resin and colour pigments are then added in the process to create unique products! The final quartz product is man made as factories manipulate colour and patterns. This results in the various colours you can see on our website or showroom. The quality of our quartz is unbeatable and is non-porous too!

Which is cheaper, Granite or Quartz?

This is something we get asked on a day to day basis. Unfortunately, this isn’t something we can give a definitive answer to! Often this is dependant on the specific colour! However, you can view some of our sale options here.
