Quartz has been a common option for home stone surfaces since the mid-century popularity it enjoyed in Europe. Quartz is an “engineered stone.” Unlike granite and marble, which are cut from the earth in solid slabs that go straight into homes without any alteration to their composition, quartz is created from ground quartz crystals that are combined with a polymer resin. Premier manufacturers like Zaroc have been able to develop quartz countertops that have captured the hearts of homeowners with their natural look and feel, wide variety of colors and patterns, and incredible strength.

The resulting marble is smoother, denser, harder, and more uniform, often with swirling veins or sometimes completely white.
