How Are Quartz Countertops Made in China
Quartz countertops are some of the most lovely, durable, and easy-to-maintain kitchen countertops on the market. Unlike their granite counterparts, they aren't cut directly from the earth. Quartz countertops are man made. It's a fascinating process and we thought you might like to learn more about it.

Where Do Quartz Countertops Come From?
Quartz is the 2nd most common mineral on earth. Its crystalline structure is usually hexagonal (six sided). This natural molecular structure makes it one of the most durable substances on the planet. No wonder quartz makes such awonderful alternative to granite!
It's found deep in the earth, which means heavy equipment and explosives are usually necessary in order to access quartz veins. Because it's so plentiful, there are quartz mines on almost every continent.
After the Quartz is Mined?
In order to create attractive patterns, they are ground as fine as sand or as large as pebbles.
These small pieces of quarts are combined with a resin and poured into a slab. Depending on the color a manufacturer is going for, other minerals and pigments will be used. Unique and special crystal flecks (check out the Mossy Green from the Zodiac Terra Collection) are saved up to this point for extra pizazz. Even recycled mirrors, glass, and other hard surfaces can be used for added eco-friendliness. All in all, a slab of quartz remains 97% quartz.
Once the slabs are poured into their desired shapes and contours, they are "cured" in an oven and then cooled. The finished product requires no polishing.
