What is Engineered Stone?
Commonly known as Technistone/Ceasarstone or quartz surfaces is
a composite manufactured material made from rock and resin.
Engineered stone can be manufactured in a vast variety of colours.
This type of kitchen top is now gaining popularity over it's older
rivals like granite - since engineered stone requires less maintenance,
is more stain resistant and resists bacterial contamination better.
Granite is a natural stone and is formed from cooling magma and is found
throughout the world. Different regions have distinct colours. Slabs are
unique and patterns inconsistent. Granite is very durable, easily cleaned
when it has a glassy polished finish and can absorb high heat.
The difference between Granite and Marble
The difference between granite and marble is that granite is a highly
dense material composed deep inside the earth's core while marble is
formed from sediments under the seabed. Both granite and marble will
solidify into stone after millions of years but the mineral composition
of the two stones makes marble and granite react very differently to
chemicals and various household and surface cleaners.
