Quartzite is a solid metamorphic stone that created as sandstone. Through a course of extraordinary heating and pressurization, sandstone is altered into Quartzite, an enormously robust and long-lasting natural stone. When heated, specific quartz pieces recrystallize giving it a beautiful and decorative sparkling pattern. Quartzite is ideal for any countertop surface due to its strength and long-lasting composition. Consider quartzite countertops for its strength, beauty, and overall durability.
