Many quartz countertops are a mixture of granite, marble, and other stones, along with quartz, giving it the name “engineered stone.” Where marble is natural and has few variations in appearance, quartz can mimic granite and marble or have a completely different look. Quartz comes in a wide array of colors and patterns.
The main difference between quartz and marble would be a weakness.
•Marble is a soft stone that can be damaged easily, making it less common in high traffic kitchen areas and more appealing in bathrooms.
•Quartz does not get damaged as easily and is less porous than marble, so it will not stain as quickly.
