- arn't there 6 types of quarks, up, down, charm, strange, top, and bottom?(4 votes)
- That's right, but in addition to those, each has an antimatter equivalent. Protons are made of three regular quarks, while antiprotons are made of three antiquarks. Some short-lived particles are even made of a quark and an antimatter quark. So there are really twelve different quarks.(1 vote)
