The 93% quartz construction provides countertops that are more durable and beautiful with less required maintenance than other stone surface materials. Resistant to heat, scratches, and scuffs, Vorona quartz is extremely durable and worry-free as well as elegant and gorgeous. The non-porous nature of Vorona countertops is also resistant to stains and will not harbor bacteria as other natural stone materials will.
Sizes—VoronaTM quartz slabs come in sizes larger than competitors, offering fabricators and installers more freedom when planning and executing projects. Slabs are available in 120 inches by 57 inches sizes as well as 128 inches by 65 inches.
Vorona quartz slabs are available in 2 cm and 3 cm thicknesses.
Colors—A wide selection of colors are available from Vorona quartz. They can be viewed at our website.
Weight—Our .75 inch slabs weigh 9.8 lbs/ft2 and the 1.25 inch slabs are 14.7 lbs/ft2.

Vorona is pure natural quartz. Variation in the natural stone (quartz) color, pattern, size, shape and shade are inherent and unique characteristics to be expected with this product. This does not affect the product performance in any manner. Color blotches are intended and designed into many colors to enhance the natural beauty. Samples are small select cuts from a slab; they do not exhibit all the characteristics of a color and therefore are not fully representative of what will be installed. Product will not be replaced due to these variations. Vorona is durable and more resistant to surface damage than other stone. However, all stone can be damaged by force and no stone is chip-proof. Objects hitting edges particularly at sinks or dishwashers may cause chips. Though a minor knife slip will dull the knife and not harm Vorona, no stone surface is scratch-proof. Surface markings are more visible on monotone colors than multi-colored surfaces. Vorona is not a seamless product, seams are visible. Where there are seams the product pattern and shade can change. Natural stone surfaces can be damaged by sudden and/or rapid change of temperature especially near the edges, as well as direct and/or sustained heating of the top. Vorona may not withstand the direct transfer of heat from pots and pans and other cooking units such as electric frying pans and griddles, and some crock-pots or roaster ovens and heat lamps. Therefore, the use of a hot pad or trivet is always recommended to prevent heating the product. Vorona is not a structural support material. 2cm and 3cm Vorona thicknesses are for countertops and must be supported. 1cm thicknesses are for surface finishes such as walls, tub and shower surrounds and fireplaces; horizontal applications such as a tub deck must be completely supported as well. Semi polished finishes (1cm) will not shine
