Revealing the Facts about Quartz and Granite Countertops


Where did Granite countertops originate? Some years ago, Granite countertops were almost unheard of, but now, these countertops are commonly found in almost every urban and rural household. Plus, these are remarkably inexpensive!

White Granite Countertops

Granite countertops are mined rocks. These rocks are not always “granite,” as described by most geologists, but are always granitic rock, which means that the rocks have a similar origin (igneous) and structure (made up of heated and compressed minerals, generating the look of compacted sparkle).

Despite that fact, you still get the durability and sturdiness of “granites” just with more colors and styles to choose from.

Since technology is ever upgrading, advancements in cutting equipment allow granite slabs to be converted into beautiful countertops with a lesser price range than ever before.

Quartz Countertop

On the other hand, Quartz countertops are not made from solid, mined rocks but with a relatively human-made material fashioned from natural quartz crystals. By weight, the material is about 5% resin (the heated glue which holds the quartz together) and 95% genuine quartz.

Quartz countertop designs are typically more muted and toned-down, which could be appealing for some people since the color and design are combined from smaller pieces of stones.

The high-heat production process, plus the resin, is a highly durable and less absorbent countertop. The lack of absorbency means your quartz and granite countertops will be stain-proof, and it won’t need to be sealed at all.

With the choices made for granite worktops and Quartz countertops, it is not hard to believe that these two are the most popular to be used in kitchens.
