Materials – Granite, Marble & Quartz
Deciding on a surface material greatly depends on your needs and the environment that the material will be exposed to. Montebello Artworks offers three options: granite, marble and quartz. Below we’ll look further into the specifications of each and what makes one better than the other according to your needs.
Granite has gained widespread use due to its massive, hard and tough nature. It is an igneous rock that is at the least 20% quartz by volume which forms through the cooling and solidification of magma or lava. Granites are predominantly white, pink or grey in colour, depending on their mineralogy. Its strength makes it a durable stone, much more durable than marble for instance. Granite is more resistant to abrasions, staining and discolouration. Granite is hence perfect for areas of constant use, such as kitchen tops and floors, without compromising on class or style.
As a metamorphic rock, marble is composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals, most commonly being calcite or dolomite. Due to its properties, marble is predominantly used in sculpture and as a building material. The characteristic swirls and veins of coloured marble are a result of various mineral impurities such as clay, silt and sand which were originally present as grains or layers in the limestone. It is different from granite in that marble is more porous, softer and less durable. Marble is a very versatile material and is most commonly used as a wall feature and in bathrooms. It is not suggested that marble is used as a kitchen counter top: its properties make it very susceptible to staining.
Quartz and resin make up Quartz engineered stone. It is most commonly used for kitchens, vanity tops and other indoor projects. Unlike marble or granite, quartz is factory-made. Compared to unsealed granite, quartz is regarded as being more resistant to stains, hence making it a more popular option for areas of constant use. Added to its strength, the availability of a wide range of colours also makes it a preferred option. Nonetheless, care must be taken if the material is to be exposed to direct sunlight: over time, UV rays from the sun can cause discolouration.
