Quartzite is a very hard metamorphic rock that originated as sandstone. It is harder than marble, and a little softer than granite countertops.Through a process of high heating and pressurization sandstone is transformed into Quartzite, an extremely strong and durable natural stone. The hardness, extra strength with elegant marble look makes quartzite countertops attractive for kitchens, bathroom vanity tops. We have tens of different quartzite slabs for you to choose from.
When heated, individual quartz pieces recrystallize giving it a beautiful and decorative sparkling pattern. Quartzite is ideal for any countertop surface due to its strength and long-lasting composition. Consider quartzite countertops for its strength, beauty, and overall durability.
Why Choose Quartzite kitchen countertops and Quartzite Countertops PA
With the above benefits of Quartzite, it’s hard to see why you shouldn’t opt for it for your kitchen countertop. First, it’s loosely a different version of Granite and Marble, perhaps an advanced version of the two.
Marble countertops are fantastic with their veins, but unlike this, quartzite isn’t porous. This is the main reason why your Quartzite kitchen countertop will not be stained easily. Moreover, it’s nearly impossible to get two identical quartzite slabs.
Quartzite naturally comes in two different shades – White or Grey, although with a subtle hue of Red, Blue, Green or Pink, thanks to some impurities. This particular trait isn’t replicated on any other choice of stone, and thus the reason why Quartzite is the de facto “luxurious stone.”
