A naturally occurring metamorphic rock, quartzite is formed by sandstone meeting intense heat and pressure. Due to the rich colors and patterns created through this process, quartzite is regarded as one of the most beautiful and sought-after home surface materials, and it is dominating the countertop scene in today’s trendy and contemporary marketplace. Besides the obvious beauty that attracts most to this stone, boosting its desire is its strength and resilience. Quartzite is so strong, in fact, that it can cut glass (as quartzite is harder!). For those wishing for a stunning, yet low-maintenance home surface option, quartzite is a material that checks both boxes.
