Quartz supplied by Diespeker is not the geological version, but a man-made conglomerate of quartz crystals and resin, pressed, heated and coloured to resemble a natural stone.
It is non-porous, hardwearing and virtually maintenance-free, a much stronger stone than granite or marble. A wide range of colours and patterns is available. If the material is coarsely ground it produces a flecked style, whereas if the stone is finely ground it produces a smooth appearance.
The material can be quite heavy and costly but will last a lifetime. Clients are welcome to view our range of stone slabs at our London factory and showroom.
Best used for: kitchen and vanity tops, and internal flooring
