Features Summary

Quartz is made from 93% natural Quartz crystals and 7% resin binder, glass, mirror and colour pigments. Quartz is predominately a natural product and some colours can have random veining, however the base colour remains consistent from the same batch.

In addition, variations in shade, the density of coloured features and veining or areas of contrast are all common within veined Quartz, occasionally this can be quite dramatic in both veining and colour groups, within each worktop and between worktops in a kitchen.
