 1. Resistant to staining

 It is hard to leave a permanent stain on quartz; as an engineered stone, quartz has improved characteristics and high resistance to staining. Nail polish, hair colours will not stand a chance against it. You will have no problems removing them with rubbing alcohol only.

 2. Durability

 Quartz tiles and worktops are very durable and will not break when exposed to high pressure. Quartz is one of the toughest stones in nature and it will last you a long time.

 3. Variety of choices

 There is not just one black quartz, but numerous. The differences are in the colour intensity, patterns, finishes…The most popular ones are starlight and veined. The first one looks like the night sky, while the other looks like veined marble.

 4. Easy to maintain.

 Cleaning of quartz surfaces is handled with ease. You will need only soap and water; just make soapsuds and wipe your surfaces with a cloth. Rinse off with water.

 Unlike natural stones, quartz doesn’t need sealing. Quartz surfaces are made of natural quartz, resins and pigments. Resins are already acting as a sealant, so you won’t have to worry about that.

 5. Price

The price for quartz slabs compared to other stones is lower. Investing in quartz surfaces is a smart choice because they are reasonably priced and last very long. They are more affordable than natural stones while providing similar characteristics.


 1. Watermarks

 Water with higher mineral compound tends to leave white marks on surfaces, which are obviously more visible on black ones. If you live in such an area, having black countertops is not the best choice, but if you clean your surfaces with a distilled water, you will be fine.

 2. Sensitive to chemicals

 Quartz is generally sensitive to chemicals that have high alkaline or acidic level. But you should be even more careful to avoid such cleaners with black quartz because the colour ware down will be even more visible on it. Cleaners to avoid include the oven cleaner, toilet bowl cleaner and any other cleaner containing bleach or ammonia.

 There are more pros than cons when it comes to having black quartz in the bathroom and even then, the cons are easily surpassed. With proper use, you will not have problems with them.
