Quartz is one of the most abundant minerals on the Earth’s crust and it comes in a very wide range of qualities.
To determine the quality of Quartz we use the Mohs scale, which compares the hardness of minerals depending on their capacity to score the surface of softer minerals. Quartz is in position 7 under the hardest elements Diamonds (10), Corundum (sapphire) (9) and Topaz (8).
Urban Quartz is a surface that is composed of up to 93% natural Quartz and 7% pigments and resins. This process is called ‘engineered stone’ and it works using vacuum vibrocompression obtaining a material with high resistance and decorative qualities.
By manufacturing our material in this way we achieve the following advantages:
