One may also ask, which is harder granite or concrete?
Both concrete and granite are tough materials that resist scratching. However, granite requires less maintenance than concrete over time. Even when polished to a smooth surface, concrete is a porous material. Granite is also a porous material, but it does not require as much ongoing effort to maintain a sealed surface.
Is quartz or granite heavier?
Because quartz and granite are minerals with natural variations, exact density varies from sample to sample, though overall quartz averages about 2.65 g/cc and granite comes in a little heavier at 2.7 to 2.8 g/cc. Countertops of comparable size of granite and quartz will weigh about the same, give or take a few pounds.
