Quartz stone contains more than 94% quartz crystal, which is the second hardest natural mineral after diamonds. And its surface hardness can be up to level 7, according to the Mohs Hardness Scale.

Besides, quartz countertop is high-temperature resistance. Naturakl quartz crystal, one of its raw material, is a typical fire resisting material and its melting point is up to 1,300 degrees. Quartz stone can completely stop burning when contacting to high temperatures.
Processed in vacuum conditions, quartz stone becomes a nonporous composite material, which endows its surface with excellent resistances in corrosion, bacteria, and stains.

Therefore, quartz countertop is a very durable decoration material. With proper maintenance, the working life of quartz countertop can be up to 20 years.
