That's sort of a toss-up and will likely get mixed responses. For me, I fall back on my Darkside for quartz. 8)

Either will work well, as will the Creamway. Of those two, I'd probably opt for the Darkside with Zirconium oxide, just because you can clean it and use other oxides on the same lap. I actually use a Matrix with Zirconium oxide.

Same as above, Darkside with Zirconium Oxide works great on quartz. Plus, you can use the Darkside for other polishes, so it's more versatile.
