Quartzite

Quartzite  is another natural occurring stone that is formed when sandstone is subjected to extreme amounts of heat and pressure. 

Some think that the beauty of Quartzite is unmatched, definitely a head turner! it is typically composed of at least 97% pure quartz, making it even harder than granite. 

For the most part, Quartzite acts much like granite as far as upkeep, it will need to be resealed periodically to prevent anything from being absorbed into the stone. It is easy to clean and scratch and heat resistant.
