No. Cambria is pure, natural quartz. Quartz is the extremely hard mineral that gives Cambria its strength. Granite is only about 40% to 60% quartz, along with other softer minerals and impurities. Cambria is not synthetic. It actually has more of the pure natural quartz that you want.
The Cambria facility produces natural quartz into slabs. We take pure natural quartz and combine it with a small amount of pigment and resin to create a slab of uncommon beauty and strength. This is done in our facility in LeSueur, Minnesota, the only one of its kind in the United States. By recombining the quartz in our facility, we are able to recreate the slabs to make them nonporous, strong and compact.
Cambria is an excellent surface choice for a wide variety of uses, including kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities, shower and tub surrounds, furniture tabletops and accent pieces, fireplace surrounds, desk tops, wet bar areas, and window sills. Cambria is available in 1cm, 2cm, and 3cm thickness. Many fabricators also offer edges that create the appearance of a thicker slab.

Generally, Cambria prices are comparable to granite and other high-end countertop options. Our trade customers such as kitchen and bath dealers, fabricators, and contractors establish Cambria retail prices. Cambria works hard to provide simple pricing to all of our trade customers. For example, unlike other products, all Cambria colors are sold at the same price. Because most other products have complex pricing schemes that vary by color and edge, we recommend that you compare quotes for various surface options to correctly evaluate Cambria pricing.
