2. Engineered Quartz Stone Kitchen Countertop (Vicostone, Lux):

Currently, artificial quartz is considered an ideal material for kitchen countertops because it possesses many superior features compared to traditional materials. Artificial quartz stone is composed of more than 90% natural quartz powder combined with polyester resin, glue, colorants and additives. Therefore, this material possesses impressive hardness and durability commensurate with granite but is more uniform in color and pattern.
