Quartzite

QUARTIZE, Quartzite is a decorative stone and may be used to cover walls, as roofing tiles, as flooring, and stairsteps. Its use for countertops in kitchens is expanding rapidly. It is harder and more resistant to stains than granite.  However, don’t confuse quartz countertops with quartzite; quartzite is a totally natural material that’s quarried like granite and marble whereas quartz countertops are man-made. Each piece of quartzite has unique color variations and patterned veining. Although it is very durable, quartzite is a porous material, which means it also needs to be periodically sealed to prevent stains. Quartz countertops are non-porous and don’t ever need to be sealed.
