Quartzite is a nonfoliated rock consisting mostly of quartz. It is the formation of sandstone being subjected to extreme heat and compression. It comes in a variety of colours and some quartzites are also translucent – making it a good alternative to Onyx.
Quartzite is 7 on Mohs hardness scale; which means it’s harder than glass and a knife blade. This makes the stone extremely suitable for kitchen countertops, high traffic flooring areas and even fireplaces in temperate climates. The maintenance of the stone is low, as it is resistant to most house acids and more scratch resistant than other stone floorings.
