Quartz is incredibly popular right now for both kitchens and bathrooms and even outdoor spaces. If you have a crush on quartz, you’ll want to take a look at HanStone quartz surfaces.
What is Quartz?
Quartz is a natural, mined mineral with a crystalline structure formed from silicone and oxygen. It is the second most abundant mineral in the earth’s crust. You might be more familiar with types of quartz that are also considered semi-precious stones such as amethyst and citrine. Quartz is one of the hardest materials on earth and rates a 7 out of 10 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness. There are only three known materials that are harder than quartz: sapphires, topaz and diamonds. As a surface, quartz has up to 6 times the durability and strength of granite, making it a great alternative choice for countertops, backsplashes and islands.
Quartz Surfaces by HanStone
HanStone quartz surfaces are made from about 93% quartz crystals mixed with high-quality polymer resins and various pigments to create a finished product that is scratch-resistant, stain-resistant and microbial-resistant. Unlike other surfaces such as tile, granite and marble, it doesn’t require regular resealing or conditioning. The non-porous nature of HanStone quartz surfaces prevent contamination or growth of bacteria, viruses and mildew or mold.
HanStone quartz surfaces are available in more than 60 colors and patterns in North America. Many of the colors and patterns are inspired by nature and the textures and hues of natural stone. HanStone quartz is made from pure mined natural quartz. Natural quartz contains variations in color, shape, shade and pattern that are part of the unique look and charm of quartz.
