Granite and Quartz

Granite is a natural hard stone which is mined from quarries all around the globe, chopped down to the required size, and afterward cleaned to a fine completion. Quartz however, is a little different. It is also a mostly-natural material but is made using about 95% natural ground quartz mixed with about 5% polymer resins.
