2. Quartz Classification

2.1 Natural quartz stone

Natural quartz stones are stone samples that are mined from natural quarries without much processing or refining. In Vietnam, rich quartz sources are discovered mainly in locations such as Dak Lak, Thanh Hoa, and Kon Tum. Based on the characteristics of color and properties of natural quartz types, they can be divided into:

  • Pure Quartz: Known as stone or clear quartz, this type has no color and is completely transparent. Often used to create hard stone works, such as Lothair Crystal.
  • Colored quartz: These types of quartz have special colors due to the presence of impurities. Some popular colors include citrine, rose quartz, amethyst, smoky quartz, milky quartz and many others.
  • Super Crystalline variations: These are variations of quartz that are smaller in size and usually cannot be seen with the naked eye. These variants can be transparent, but are largely opaque, with Canxedon being a common form.
  • Mixed stones: Additionally, there are mixed stones that contain quartz along with other minerals, making up agate, carnelian, sard, onyx, heliotrope and jasper. Often found in these stones are textured bands with contrasting colors, unique and attractive.

2.2 Engineered Quartz Stone

Engineered quartz is created through an industrial production process, usually by combining natural quartz grains (90%) with glue or resin and colorants. Artificial quartz can be refined to have more diverse colors and patterns.

2.3 Refined quartz stone

Refined quartz is a type of stone that is specially refined and processed to create special colors and patterns. Not all forms of quartz exist naturally. Some clear quartz crystals can be treated with heat or gamma radiation to produce colors that are not naturally present. For example, although citrine exists naturally, the majority of citrine seen on the market is the result of heat treatment of amethyst or smoky quartz.

3. Advantages of quartz stone

Quartz stone is not only beautiful but also has many outstanding advantages, including:

  • Durability and hardness: Quartz stone has high hardness, can withstand impact and abrasion, helping the product maintain its long-lasting beauty. With a rating of 7/10 on the Mohs hardness scale, it can withstand regular environmental wear and tear.
  • Anti-mold and anti-acid properties: With waterproof and anti-acid properties, quartz is not susceptible to stains penetrating inside and discoloring, making it easy to clean, especially on kitchen countertops.
  • Easy to craft and install: Quartz stone can be crafted into many different shapes and sizes, thereby making it easy to install in interior and exterior spaces.

4. Quartz Application in Construction

In the construction industry, quartz stone has many different applications, including:

  • Use as a construction material: making columns, walls or partitions, creating a solid and beautiful structure.
  • Exterior decoration and landscape: creating highlights for aquariums, pathways and swimming pools, beautiful and sophisticated exterior spaces.
  • Applications in large architectural works: From high buildings to entertainment areas.
