As beautiful as marble and with care more durable, quartzite is an exciting new décor option for natural stone fixtures. Quartzite slabs can be adapted for many home applications; from a fresh new quartzite backsplash, to eye-catching quartzite countertops. Quartzite arrives in a variety of beautiful colours, deep textures and fascinating patterns. For its exotic qualities, quartzite is usually more expensive natural stone, however many home owners find it is worth the investment for high-use applications.
QUARTZITE SLAB DIFFERENCES
Quartzite is divided in two categories: hard and soft. Hard quartzite is the most durable and can be as dependable as granite. A hard quartzite counter won’t scratch, is stain resistant, and will not be scarred by acid.. For enduring performance, soft quartzite is in-between marble and granite as a natural stone fixture. Generally soft quartzite counters are more durable than marble, but still contains calcium carbonate which makes a quartzite slab sensitive to acid etching. Both soft and hard quartzite natural stone categories [JM1] [HG2] are great options for any décor such as a quartzite countertop, a quartzite backsplash or quartzite wall feature.
