Definition of quartz stone

Quartz stone, usually what we call quartz stone is a new type of stone artificially synthesized by more than 90% of quartz crystal plus resin and other trace elements. It is a large-scale plate pressed by a special machine under certain physical and chemical conditions, and its main material is quartz.
Quartz is a mineral that becomes liquid easily when exposed to heat or pressure. It is also a very common rock-forming mineral, which is found in all three types of rocks. Because it crystallizes the latest in igneous rocks, it usually lacks complete crystal faces and is mostly filled among other rock-forming minerals that crystallized first.Excellent Sparkling Lake Quartz Stone is a crowd favorite.

appearance characteristics

The composition of quartz is the simplest silicon dioxide, glass luster, no cleavage plane, but a conchoidal fracture. Microcrystalline quartz is called chalcedony, agate, or jasper. Pure quartz is colorless but varies in color due to impurities that often contain transition elements. Quartz is very stable and does not easily weather or change into other minerals. According to the crystallization degree of SiO2, it can be divided into monocrystalline quartz and polycrystalline quartzite. Gloss: glass luster. Color: None, white with tinges of gray, yellow to orange, purple, deep purple, pink, taupe, brown, black. Streaks: White. Specific gravity: 2.65 ~ 2.66. Category: Metamorphic rock, metamorphosed from sandstone.The latest design Sparkling Lake Quartz Stone welcomes your inquiries.

PERFECT STONE - what is quartz stone


Formation process

During the intrusive evolution of magma, due to changes in temperature, pressure, and other conditions, hydrothermal fluids rich in SiO2 are differentiated, which penetrate into the metamorphic rock series of surrounding rocks along bedding and fissures, or along the contact fracture zone of previous magmatic rocks Intruded, forming vein-shaped quartzite ore bodies.
physical properties
(1) Brittle.
(2) It is pyroelectric.
(3) The refractive index is 1.533 ~ 1.541, the birefringence difference is 0.009, and the dispersion is 0.013.
(4) Quartz has a strong piezoelectric property (Piezoelectric property), that is, sparks will be generated when it is struck and rubbed hard, which is how flint makes fire.
(5) Common inclusions in quartz include: Hair crystal – mainly rutile. Grass crystal – mainly tourmaline; water gall crystal – there are liquid inclusions in quartz; blue quartz – contains light blue rutile needles; milky quartz – turbidity caused by fine water holes; green quartz – formed by plate Or fragmented chlorite, sometimes it may be green needle-shaped actinolite; aventurine (Aventurine)-quartzite contains green or reddish-brown mica flakes inside, also known as bright quartz, commonly known as aventurine. Smoky black to dark brown smoky quartz is common, mainly because these rocks contain a large amount of radioactive uranium and thorium elements.

Material properties

Not easy to break

Quartz stone has a quartz content as high as 94%. Quartz crystal is a natural mineral whose hardness is second only to diamonds in nature. Its surface hardness can be as high as 7.5 on the Mohs scale, which is much larger than sharp tools such as knives and shovels used in the kitchen, and will not be scratched by it. hurt.

Not easy to pollute

Excellent Sparkling Lake Quartz Stone is a dense and non-porous composite material manufactured under vacuum conditions. Its quartz surface has good corrosion resistance to the acid and alkali of the kitchen. Only need to wipe off the liquid with clean water or cleanser such as Jieerliang with a rag, and if necessary, use a blade to scrape off the residue on the surface.

Not easy to age

The shiny and bright surface of Latest design Sparkling Lake Quartz Stone has undergone more than 30 complicated polishing processes. It will not be scratched by knives and shovels, will not be penetrated by liquid substances, and will not cause yellowing and discoloration. Daily cleaning only needs to be rinsed with clean water, which is simple and easy. Even after a long period of use, its surface is as bright as a newly installed countertop without care and maintenance.

Strong fire resistance

Natural quartz crystal is a typical refractory material. Its melting point is as high as 1300 degrees. Quartz stone made of 94% natural quartz is completely flame-retardant and will not burn due to exposure to high temperatures. It also has high temperature resistance that artificial stone and other countertops cannot match. characteristic, toxic free, and safe.

The surface of Excellent Sparkling Lake Quartz Stone is smooth, flat, scratch-free, and residue-free. The dense and non-porous material structure makes bacteria nowhere to hide and can be in direct contact with food, safe and non-toxic.

Excellent Sparkling Lake Quartz Stone adopts selected natural quartz crystal minerals, its SiO2 content exceeds 99.9%, and it is purified during the manufacturing process. The raw material does not contain any heavy metal impurities that may cause radiation. 94% of quartz crystals and other Advanced resin additives make quartz stone free from the risk of radiation contamination
