WHAT IS QUARTZITE?

Quartzite is chiefly made up of quartz- a very resilient natural mineral. Quartzite is a metamorphic rock that began its life as sandstone primarily consisting of quartz mineral, and not to be confused with Quartz countertops, which are manufactured by fusing resins, pigments and quartz stone chips together. Quartzite is a natural stone that is strikingly eye-catching with a marble-like appearance and granite-like durability with a multitude of options for surface applications.

WHAT MAKES QUARTZITE COUNTERTOPS A STANDOUT CHOICE?

Quartzite Uses

Like granite, quartzite can be used in a number of applications including kitchen countertops, vanity tops, fireplace surrounds, bar tops, backsplashes, flooring, wall cladding, and more. With its exceptional durability, it is versatile for outdoor use as well.

Quartzite Colors And Finishes

Quartzite is available in every color and pattern imaginable. In pure form, it’s typically white or light in color but with the presence of other elements and minerals, shades can vary from pink and green to blue and red. You can also choose from three finishes: a shiny polished, matte honed or textured leathered.

Quartzite Cost

Generally, in the higher priced categories, quartzite materials are suitable for an array of project budgets for your kitchen or bath. Starting at about $65/sq.ft. price varies with demand and the rarity of the stone. Our staff can help you select the piece that’s right for your style and needs.

How to clean quartzite

Quartzite is easily maintained with regular sealing and simple daily care using mild soaps or natural stone cleaners. If you purchase material from us we will walk you through the proper care & maintenance guidelines to keep your stone looking beautiful for years to come.

  • You have found a return customer in me!

    “Every aspect of my dealings with Capitol Granite were excellent. Ashley was friendly and informative. David came to the house to conduct the final measure and was also helpful and provided guidance on how to prepare for the install. And finally, our absolutely stunning quartz counters were delivered and expertly installed by Dan and his assistant Craig. You have found a return customer in me! Happy New Year!”

  • The team at Capitol Granite we're great to work with!

    “The team at Capitol Granite we're great to work with. They were able to match the stone that was already in our kitchen and helped is pick out a Quartz slab to put on an island we added. The installation was "spot on"!!! The team that came out from templating to installation we're very professional and knowledgeable. I will be recommending Capitol Granite to anyone who is in the market for stone.”
