Nebraska's Stone Artists
A man-made or engineered stone. Made from granite and quartz dust in an epoxy Base. Vacuumed and polished to form a durable solid surface.
Quartz - a hard white or colorless mineral consisting of silicon dioxide, found widely in igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks. It is often colored by impurities. The more pure the quartz the more the product typically costs.
Granite is typically the material of choice. A very hard, granular, crystalline, igneous rock consisting mainly of quartz, mica, and feldspar and often used as a building stone. Granite defines elegance in a kitchen. The beauty of the stone contributes to the beauty of even modest kitchens.
Marble is a metamorphic rock that forms when limestone is subjected to the heat and pressure of metamorphism. It is composed primarily of the mineral calcite (CaCO3) and usually contains other minerals, such as clay minerals, micas, quartz, pyrite, iron oxides, and graphite. Under the conditions of metamorphism, the calcite in the limestone recrystallizes to form a rock that is a mass of interlocking calcite crystals. A related rock, dolomitic marble, is produced when dolostone is subjected to heat and pressure. We have 4 distributors in Omaha and many others outside Omaha metro. Refer to granite.
Quartzite is a very hard metamorphic rock that originated as sandstone. Through a process of high heating and pressurization sandstone is transformed into Quartzite, an extremely strong and durable natural stone. When heated, individual quartz pieces recrystallize giving it a beautiful and decorative sparkling pattern. Quartzite is ideal for any countertop surface due to its strength and long-lasting composition. Consider quartzite countertops for its strength, beauty, and overall durability. Similar to glass, Buyer be warned many distributors label their stone with quartzite, this is not always the case. Please ask your fabricator.
