Often confused with quartz, quartzite claims a spot next to reputable countertop stones like granite and marble because of its durability, natural formation and beauty. The stone consists of high percentages, 90-99%, of quartz. Under extreme conditions in the earth’s crust, the quartz fuses together to create a solidified stone considerably harder than granite. Quartzite and marble share similar characteristics in terms of their appearance. Yet, quartzite is practically impenetrable unlike marble. This means your kitchen countertops have little to no chance of being scratched or damaged while you teach your child how to cut tomatoes. This said, quartzite makes for a perfect accompaniment to any home. Whether in the kitchen or bathroom, under the roof or out on the patio in the sun, quartzite is repeatedly chosen for its warm aesthetic, heat resistance and tribute to nature. What started as sandstone now shines with the results of high heat and pressure from millions of years in the earth. With roots that dig deep into earth’s history, quartzite holds memories within it which will only complement the memories made in your home.
