These rocks mainly consist of feldspar, quartz, mica, and amphibole minerals – about 40% to 60% quartz, along with other softer natural mineralsUnlike granite, each piece of quartz is similar and has a more consistent look. It is also heat resistant, but unlike granite – where you can leave the hot pan for a long time, you cannot leave it on quartz, as the heat will react with resin, and can leave a mark.Quartz is the extremely hard mineral.
