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.

  • They truly are a customer service centric company which makes all the difference.

    “Working with Capitol Granite was a great experience! They truly are a customer service centric company which makes all the difference. Haley who helped us pick out our stone was patient and detailed. CG also installed our kitchen cabinets. Jim and George did an amazing job and the countertop installation was flawless. We will be working with them again when we remodel our bathrooms.”

  • 15/10 would highly recommend giving them a try!

    “We had such an amazing experience with Capitol Granite! I was clueless about countertop options. Serena helped guide me along and gave me very helpful tips and advice to help us choose our final option. We were kind of in a time crunch and needed our countertops done quickly. Unfortunately we did not end up choosing the quartz that had the quick turn around, but Serena was able to get our countertops expedited for us! We also chose a type of granite that they were currently out of stock and they took us to the company that they buy their granite from and let us pick which lot we wanted to use! I cannot say enough good things about this company! They went above and beyond for us! I am so thankful that we used them! 15/10 would highly recommend giving them a try!”

  • 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!”

    “My husband and I just replaced our countertops with Capital Granite. They were a pleasure to work with and everything went smoothly. Serena was very helpful and went out of her way to assist us. We are very pleased with our purchase and would refer them to anyone looking for granite.”
