What is quartz stone?

- May 16, 2018-


Quart stone, commonly known as quart stone, is a new type of stone that is artificially synthesized from more than 90% of quartz crystals plus resin and other trace elements. It is a large-size plate pressed by a special machine under certain physical and chemical conditions. Its main material is quartz.

Quartz is a mineral that easily becomes liquid by heat or pressure. It is also a fairly common rock-forming mineral that is found in all three major types of rock. Because it crystallizes at the latest in igneous rocks, it usually lacks a complete crystal face, and is mostly filled with other previously crystallized rock-forming minerals. The composition of quartz is the simplest type of silicon dioxide [ie, silicon dioxide. 矽: the old name of silicon] (sio2), shiny glass, no cleavage surface, but with a conchoidal fracture. Microcrystalline quartz is called chalcedony, agate, or jasper. Pure quartz is colorless but presents different colors due to impurities that often contain transition elements. Quartz is very stable, not easily weathered or changed into other minerals. According to the degree of SiO2 crystallinity can be divided into crystalline single crystal quartz, polycrystalline quartzite jade.
