Quartzite is a naturally occurring metamorphic rock that was originally pure quartz sandstone. When the stones are mined, they are sawn into slabs that exhibit the beauty of nature’s creative process.

Known largely for rich veins of color and often translucent appearance, quartzite is usually found in whites and grays, with occasional beiges, but also it is possible to come across shades of pinks and reds, blends of blues and yellows, and seas of green and blue. Quartzite is a great choice for countertops since it retains its color and doesn’t fade, even in direct sunlight.

Quartzite is also one of the hardest stones, with a score of seven on the Mohs Hardness Scale.

Daily maintenance is limited to cleaning up spills immediately, and washing it with simple soap and water or another non-abrasive cleaner.
