Quartz stone is an artificial stone die-casting plate, the plate filler is more than 90% quartz and 7% resin is synthesized. The filler quartz sand used after decontamination does not contain harmful objects and radiation sources. Known as an indoor green decorative stone, the Custom Quartz Stone Surface price is much higher than other stone. Granite, also known as engineering stone, is also a kind of artificial stone, and its appearance is very similar to that of artificial quartz. However, the filler of the granite is natural gravel, that is, the stone scrap is reused, and it is applied to outdoor engineering decoration, and the price is relatively cheap.

Then observe from the side, the quartz stone is evenly distributed in the artificial cloth particles, and the inside and outside are consistent. Finally, look at their hardness, the hardness of quartz is second only to diamond, its hardness is up to 7 grades of Mohs hardness, so there is no way to scratch the iron.
