If you love stone, natural QUARTIZITE is a good choice for you. It is a hard, non-foliated metamorphic rock which was originally pure quartz sandstone. Sandstone is converted into quartzite through heating and pressure usually related to tectonic compression within orogenic belts. The neutral colors complement any design. The veining creates elegant movement. It is a luxurious and durable stone for upscale-elegance that isn’t matched by any other stone countertop. Natural quartzite is harder than granite and doesn’t scratch or etch the way other natural stones can. It withstands heat and isn’t endangered when you place hot items on it. The benefits of natural quartzite makes the price worth it for many.
Pros: UV Resistant, Harder Than Granite, Looks Like Marble.
Cons: Limited Color Choices, Not Perfectly Stain Resistant, More Costly Than Granite.
