Quartzite

Quartzite is a metamorphic rock that begins as sandstone, is subjected to extreme heat and pressure and becomes quartzite.

Quartzite is a natural stone that has been around for a long time and is currently seeing a surge in popularity, in both residential and commercial properties. Quartzite offers a classy touch with a modern look.

Colors

Quartzite typically comes in shades of white and gray. However, colors can be present. Slabs of quartzite can have veining and movement.

Finishes

Polished

Achieved through grinding and buffing the material, this finish creates a glossy surface that really highlights the details and variations of a slab of quartzite. Polished quartzite is less porous than honed meaning choosing this finish will make your countertop more resistant to staining.

Honed (a.k.a. matte)


Achieved through sanding, this finish adds a smooth texture to quartzite. However, it will make the color seem muted. Honed quartzite doesn’t show etching as easily as a polished finish; however, the honing process opens the pores making it more susceptible to staining.

Leathered

A leathered finish usually has a soft sheen to it. It hides fingerprints, water spots and smudges well.
