Quartzite is a very hard metamorphic rock that originates as sandstone. Through the process of high heating and pressurization, sandstone is transformed into quartzite. Quartzite is hard and naturally strong. This makes quartzite somewhat harder than quartz and an ideal stone for kitchen countertops.
Quartzite is naturally strong, resistant to heat from pots and pans, and is hard to stain. Quartzite is also resistant to most household acids.
With its strength and beauty, adding quartzite countertops is a great way to take your kitchen to the next level.
