Engineered stones are man made, and have generally become referred to as 'Quartz' slabs. They are comprised of 93% crushed quartz, and 7% resin to bind it together, along with various pigments to give it distinctive appearance - there are many different brands, but all use virtually the same formula. This is not to be confused with 'quartzite', which is a natural stone with similar properties to granite. These quartz surfaces and countertops offer a great combination of from and function, allowing a durable and practical countertop surfacing material. For those people who want an extremely uniform appearance, and to be able to choose a color from factory produced samples, these materials are often the top choice. With all the different brands, there are now literally hundreds of different colors to choose from.
