Quartzite countertops are made of 100% natural stone, and are not to be confused with the engineered stone Quartz countertops. Quartzite can be used in almost any application; it is non porous making it difficult to stain. It’s harder than granite, scratch and heat resistant, making it perfect for applications in the kitchens like center islands and countertops. It comes in a multitude of vibrant colors and beautiful patterns so your design options are virtually limitless. Surface etching is a concern when exposed to acid commonly found in foods like vinegar and lemons. This can be remedied by following proper care and maintenance instructions or choosing a stone slab with a honed surface rather than highly polished and glossy finish. Our sales consultants can help you select the best quartzite slab for your intended use.
