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.
