Quartz is 97% natural. Quartz countertop maker Caesarstone notes that 93% natural quartz aggregates are mixed with the remaining 7% of color pigments and polymer resins. The resins bind the particles together. Due to the presence of the resins, quartz counters are less prone to staining. Quartz is designed especially for rigorous kitchen conditions.
