What is quartz as a raw material, that is extensively used in the manufacturing of quartz granite?

The quartz raw material industry involves the mining and processing natural quartz crystals or silica sand. Quartz is primarily composed of silicon dioxide (SiO2) and is widely used in various applications, including the production of engineered quartz (quartz stone) and other quartz-based materials.

The mined quartz is processed into smaller particles, graded, and sorted based on size and quality. The processed quartz raw material is then used as a critical component in the manufacturing of engineered quartz, which is popularly used in kitchen countertops, bathroom surfaces, and other interior applications.
