If there’s such a thing as a perfect material for kitchen and bath surfaces, Cambria Quartz may just be it. Stronger and even more durable and natural than granite, available in a range of 120 colors and patterns, this product is easy to care for, never needs sealing or polishing, is safe for all food products, and never emits toxic fumes or gases. It is also green, making it a stylish choice for homeowners looking to incorporate a sleek color while protecting our natural resources.
The quartz used in this kind of counter is primarily mined in North America and made in Minnesota. The company is committed to sustainable practices, even recycling the water used in its fabrication, and sending scrap pieces to be used as sturdy road base in local construction projects.
Quartz is the second most abundant material in the earth’s crust, and it is also a component of many natural stone products, including granite. There are many types of quartz, and its crystalline structure also makes it popular for jewelry. Some forms of quartz are considered semi-precious stones, notably amethyst, citrine, onyx, agate and tiger’s eye.
In the case of countertops, slabs and stone tile, it is quartz that lends strength and character. Granite often has as little as 40 to 60 percent quartz content, but manufactured Cambria Quartz is typically 93 percent pure quartz.
