Quartzite is a hard, dense, durable natural stone that gives your kitchen an attractive, glossy appearance.
What is Quartzite?
Although quartzite sounds similar to quartz, it’s actually very different. Quartzite is a natural stone which was originally quartz sandstone that was turned into quartzite through natural processes. Quartzite is a very hard, durable stone that’s harder than both quartz and granite. As a result, it can take more labor to cut the stone, but it’s a very stylistic stone with natural veining and designs.
Why Use Quartzite?
Quartzite is a genuine natural stone which has properties similar to granite. It makes your kitchen look interesting and impressive. It has a similar look to marble which cannot be replicated. Each slab of quartzite is unique which makes your kitchen visually appealing. If you want the look and features of quartzite, then it’ll be a great material for your kitchen.
