What Is Mineral Stone?

What is Mineral Stone?

Triton Stone continues to lead the way in educating our community about the risks of silica exposure. Our commitment to creating a safe work environment for industry workers drives us to explore eco-friendly alternatives to quartz countertops, such as mineral stone. We have sourced a curated selection of stunning alternatives for you! 

Mineral stone is a type of engineered stone made from a combination of natural minerals and resin. Like quartz, it is a popular choice for countertops, flooring and other surfaces in homes because of its durability, stain resistance, and low maintenance requirements. In comparison to quartz, mineral stone is often considered a more environmentally friendly alternative because it uses fewer synthetic materials in its production process. Additionally, mineral stone is less likely to discolor or fade over time, making it a long-lasting choice for homeowners. 

How is mineral stone made?

Mineral stone is made by combining natural minerals such as quartz, granite, and marble with resin and pigments. This mixture is then compressed under high pressure and cured to create a durable and versatile material for use in homes. 

How does it benefit homeowners?

Mineral stone offers several benefits for homeowners. It is highly durable and resistant to scratches, stains and heat, making it a great choice for kitchen countertops and bathroom vanities. It is also non-porous, which means it does not require sealing and is less likely to harbor bacteria. Similar to quartz, mineral stone comes in a wide range of colors and patterns, giving homeowners the ability to choose a style that fits their style and aesthetic. Mineral stone is a versatile and practical alternative to quartz in homes. 

What are other alternatives to quartz?

Porcelain slabs are a fantastic alternative to quartz. Like mineral stone, porcelain slabs are also resistant to stains, scratches and heat, making them perfect for kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities and outdoor spaces. And guess what? Triton Stone has its very own exclusive line of porcelain slabs called Crescent Porcelain!
