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.
