12 Pros Cons of Quartz Countertops: Are They Worth

Quartz is a natural mineral composed of silicon and oxygen, and, according to Geology, it's the most abundant mineral on Earth. Quartz: Natural Mineral The confusion around whether quartz is natural or man-made stems from the fact that quartz, which is the main component in quartz countertops, is a natural mineral, but quartz countertops are engineered by man.
