Quartz is one of the most abundant minerals on Earth. It is composed of silicon and oxygen. They are engineered into stone form, unlike granite or marble. Although these manmade slabs were not readily accepted in the beginning, they became popular when homeowners realized that the engineered stones can be every way good as the natural stones.
At its purest form, Quartz is hard, transparent, and colorless. Once Quartz is mined they are mixed with substances like resin and color pigments. They are then to make it suitable for use. Since it is handmade, an endless variety of colors, designs, and patterns can be incorporated with the Engineered Quartz Stones (EQS). Quartz in the form of crystals is said to have healing properties.
Quartz mineral is found in many semi-precious stones and is used as jewelry. EQS is widely used for wall cladding, tabletops, countertops, stairs, flooring applications, bathtubs, backsplash, fountains, monuments, decorative pieces, etc. They are suitable for both indoor or outdoor applications and commercial or residential setups.
As EQS has properties that ensure the long lifeline of the stone, they remain as a cheaper alternative for granite. At Hilltop we provide a wide variety of Quartz slabs suitable for various setups.
