Quartz is one of the most durable types of stone used for kitchen countertops. The hard resin and stone mixture gives quartz countertops an elegant, highly durable slab that can be engineered to fit almost any type space. Engineered stone surfaces are durable enough to withstand kitchen activities such as cooking and cleaning, but can be damaged with careless accidents or improper care.
