What are the Differences in 2019?
Quartz has matured in quality, appearance and market share, which is bringing down the price. In the past 2 years it seems as if quartz manufacturers have outdone themselves each quarter with better colors and patterns. During that same time, quartz market share has gone up and that has enabled the “economies of scale” to lower the price of quartz. Significant appearance enhancements have made quartz a popular choice for customers seeking the marble look.
Both Marble and Dolomite are soft and vulnerable to etching and scratching. Quartz colors that look like real marble do not suffer either of those drawbacks.
