Our Selection of QUARTZITE

Strong, Unique, Variety of Colors

Quartzite is a naturally occurring stone, like granite, but is different when it comes to the formation of the stone. Quartzite is a metamorphic stone, meaning that it's formed when rocks and sandstone undergo extreme pressure and heat to meld into a new material. Because this is a metamorphic stone it's resistant to scratching, etching, and acids which makes it perfect for a kitchen setting. Although granite has the same advantages, the colors are a lot lighter in quartzite because of the amount of sandstone in it's make up. There can also be a lot more blues, greens, and reds that are naturally occurring as well as veining that makes it look a lot like marble. Some quartzite is very difficult to distinguish from a marble, but an easy test you can perform is with a piece of glass. Marble will be scratched by the glass whereas quartzite will scratch the glass or wear it down.
