What is Quartzite?

A naturally occurring metamorphic rock, quartzite is created when sandstone is subjected to extreme heat and pressure caused by tectonic plate compression in the earth’s crust. This results in a very hard and durable stone with subtle, beautiful patterns and colors resulting from other minerals present within the rock as it underwent heating and compression.

The experts at Marble & Granite Tech can help complete your home or commercial space with quartzite. The stone is available as a slab in a range of earthy colors, which generally include white or gray with hints of black and brown. Other minerals are contained within the stone can add pink or red hues and hints of blue, yellow, or green.

Resistant to heat and abrasion, quartzite is an ideal countertop surface for busy environments. The stone is mined and sawn into slabs, which are cut, polished and sealed for countertops. A robust hardness protects the surface from scratching and etching. When the stone is sealed properly, maintenance can be performed with household cleaners.
