Quartzite is a natural stone formed when pure quartz sandstone is exposed to natural heating and pressure, creating a hard, non-foliated metamorphic rock. Pure quartzite is usually white to grey, though quartzite often occurs in shades of pink and red due to varying amounts of iron oxide. Various colors like yellow, green, orange, and blue quartzite can also arise when other minerals are present.
Quartzite is a stunning natural stone that often gets confused with marble because of its veining and wide range of colors. The primary difference is its durability. It’s harder than glass, will not be scratched by a knife blade, and is heat resistant. It doesn’t stop there, go ahead and place a lemon on your quartzite overnight; you won’t wake to etch caused by acids.
Quartzite is one of the top choices you will have for countertop materials. While its hardness may make the fabrication take longer, its high-quality looks and durability are worth the time and budget. Innovative designers use quartzite for kitchen and bathroom countertops, backsplashes, and various spaces needing a beautiful, long-lasting surface.
Your natural granite countertops slab is a one-of-kind durable piece of stone that can increase the value of a home. From subtle to bold, granite is full of many types of minerals resulting in shiny flecks to longer intense veining with overall hues from light to dark and a variety of colors. Granite stone also contains natural anti-bacterial and stain proof characteristics, and is water, scratch, and heat resistant. With these qualities, granite countertops are made to withstand a lot of wear and tear.
