Granite, quartzite, marble, quartz are these all the same thing? If this is a question you often ask yourself continue to read on to enlighten yourself with the difference between the three.
Granite, a natural material is an igneous rock with grains large enough to be visible with the unaided eye. It forms from the slow crystallization of magma below Earth’s surface. Granite is composed mainly of quartz and feldspar with minor amounts of mica, amphiboles and other minerals. This mineral composition usually gives granite a red, pink, gray or white color with dark mineral grains visible throughout the rock.
Granite countertops will need to be sealed before they are used and this will need to be repeated year after year for as long as you own the countertop. Granite is a porous stone and can only be considered to be stain-resistant if it has been sealed properly.
Quartz is a man made product which contains crushed quartz mixed with resin in a ratio of 93% quartz to 7% resin. They are manufactured in a variety of different patterns and colors. Quartz a maintenance free product that is scratch and stain resistant. It is non-porous and does not require any sealing.
