Our Compac Unique Marquina quartz surface displays all the beautiful white veins of the Spanish Nero Marquina marble and none of the stains, scratches, or marks when you use it as a kitchen worktop. Not only it offers the most delicate veins amongst the Nero Marquina quartz stones, but it also boasts a non-absorbent surface.
The Unique Marquina quartz is a natural stone replica, and as such, it offers a similar look with superior performance. What makes it so unique and original is the fine grains carefully spread across the slab. It gives it a more refined look when compared with other Marquina quartz with bold yet somewhat inky veining. Additionally, it is resistant to heat and cold, making it an ideal choice for many applications.
Introducing Compac Unique Marquina: A Non-Porous Black Marble With White Veins Design
This beautiful natural stone is perfect for any home or office décor. It is also ideal for use in both the kitchen and bathroom spaces. The Compac Unique Marquina quartz surface is an intense black backdrop with intricate white veining. It is a natural stone replica that offers superior performance to other stones, such as marble. The elegant veins and delicate patterns give it a minimalistic feel you cannot achieve with other Marquina quartz worktops. In addition, its non-porous surface is also resistant to stains, scratches, and marks, making it an ideal choice for kitchen worktops.
More Resistant To Impact
Compac Unique Marquina boasts a strength of 6.4 in Moh’s scale of mineral resistance, compared to 3 in Nero Marquina marble. Thanks to it, Unique Marquina quartz gets exceptional resistance to damage by impacts and foot traffic. In addition, it makes it more wear-resistant to scuffing and scratch-resistant than Nero Marquina, making it more suitable for demanding applications such as worktops and floorings.
Despite its outstanding resistance, the white veins of Compac Unique Marquina are better camouflaged. It is because they are less visible than those of Nero Marquina marble. It makes it an elegant option for classic and modern spaces.

Don’t worry! Compac Unique Marquina’s maintenance is greatly hassle-free.
- Clean any spills and stains without letting them remain on the surface for hours. You can use water, a soft cloth and a mild cleaner.
- Use a window spray for the polished finish and the Barkeepers’ Friend sprays for the glacé finish product.
- Compac Unique Marquina is heat resistant. But don't let hot objects sit on the surface for too long.
- Avoid direct sunlight or UV radiation on the worktop to prevent fading.
Not at all! Compac Unique Marquina is one of the best stone surfaces you can install in your kitchen during refurbishment. It’s a particularly significant investment not just for its stunning looks but also durability and ease of maintenance.
It can also easily handle high temperatures (up to 150 Celsius), scratches and stains. Moreover, its smooth, non-porous surface ensures it is hygienic, impervious to dirt, liquids and bacteria, and highly workable.
No. As with all Compac quartz surfaces, Unique Marquina is non-porous and does not require sealing. Phew!
The main difference between these two stones is that Nero Marquina marble is a natural stone, and Compac Unique Marquina is engineered.
Nero Marquina marble has a porosity of 14.5%, which makes it highly porous, and Compac Unique Marquina offers a 0.07% absorption rate, resulting in a non-porous surface. Similarly, Nero Marquina marble requires sealants to protect it from staining every two years. In contrast, Unique Marquina is a quartz product that does not require additional surface protection.
Finally, because Unique Marquina is a quartz surface, acids cannot affect it and etch its surfaces as they can on marble stones such as Black Marquina.
