Quartz is one of the hardest minerals on the planet; in fact, it is the most concentrated mineral in Earth’s “continental crust” and the most natural mineral on the planet’s surface. It has a hardness of 7 on the Mohs scale and is found in sedimentary and igneous rocks. Quartz crystals are usually wide and faultless. There are several different styles of Quartz, each with its own colours and characteristics, such as Rock Crystal, which is a colourless, translucent Quartz, Rutilated Quartz, which is a yellow with a needle blinker pattern, and Smoky Quartz, which is a dark, almost black Quartz.Checkout PREMIUM WORKTOPS DIRECT LTD, LEEDS for more info.
The basic mineral can be found combined with other minerals and natural materials in a few locations around the world, including Calcite, Fluorapatite (mostly in Afghanistan), and Ilvaite (in Russia). Silica is another word for quartz (which depicts Quartz, Opal & Chalcedony).
Caesar Stone Company was founded in 1987 near Caesarea Maritima, an ancient Roman city in Israel, and was one of the first manufacturers of quartz slabs for kitchens, which were sold as quartz countertops in various styles and for a variety of other applications. For the equal home kitchen, their surface slabs are built to be simple to transport, fabricate, and create.
The key ingredient of Quartz surfaces is quartz, which is one of nature’s toughest fabrics. In the mid-80s, companies like CS revolutionised the surface market by creating entirely different types of quartz surfaces. Quartz surfaces were created using an approximately 93 percent natural quartz blend, as well as a combination of tint and polymer resins.
With high-end materials such as quartz the workmanship is as important as the material.
If you deal with approved fabricators, many quartz companies will offer limited warranties ranging from 10 years to a lifetime warranty.
An expert fabricator of quartz worktops will be able to offer advice on your project and have the artistic passion to match their technical knowledge.
