Experience the Unmatched Elegance & Durability of Natural Quartzite Slabs

With pleasing streaks and veining similar to marble and durability that rivals granite, natural quartzite slabs are becoming an increasingly popular choice for kitchen and bath countertops, backsplashes, and feature walls. The crystalline sparkle and eye-catching patterns of quartzite come in an array of earthy colors perfect for complementing any design, making the stone a favored choice among builders, decorators, and homeowners.

Rich in Character

Commonly confused with engineered quartz, a manmade stone, quartzite is a naturally formed metamorphic rock, the result of pressure on quartz-rich sandstone deposits deep within the earth’s crust. It is mined from many countries worldwide, as well as locally across the U.S. from Utah, Arizona and California to Texas, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Luxurious and Lasting

Each piece of quartzite is unique in character, with the look of softer, more porous marble and the strength and hardness of granite. No two slabs look the same. Common colors include the swirling white and grey tones popular in today’s kitchen designs, as well as rarer varieties such as brown, gold, orange, red, green and blue, with variations dependent upon iron oxide content, region, and age of the stone.

Stunningly Sturdy

Despite its marble-like similarities, quartzite is harder and less porous, resulting in easier maintenance and less wear. This does not mean the stone is indestructible, however. Quartzite should be sealed annually to protect the surface from etching and stains, and though it rivals granite in hardness and heat resistance, it requires similar care. Use cutting boards and trivets for pots and pans, avoiding prolonged heat exposure, and take care with spills, particularly those of the acidic variety. Regularly sealed, such spills are easily cleaned with a sponge or cloth and soapy water, avoiding abrasives to keep your countertop looking like new.

Quartzite Quality

Quartzite is frequently confused with other stones, and the term used loosely in the stone industry. A knowledgeable, reputable source is key to getting what you pay for. Marble and dolomites, more reactive to acidic foods than quartzite, are frequently confused with the stone. These require different care, and not being true quartzite, can leave buyers disappointed. Be sure to check with your provider regarding your stone selection, opting for harder options for increased durability.
