Quartzite is a hard, non-foliated metamorphic rock and it forms when silica-rich sandstone is altered by metamorphism. Unlike marble, which is mainly formed of calcite, this rock type is quartz based, therefore it is tougher and more resistant to stains, acids and abrasion. With its Mohs hardness of 7, quartzite is one of the hardest natural materials used in the dimension stone industry.
Below you can see a wide selection of exotic quartzite colours which are suitable for both traditional and contemporary interiors. If you are unable to find in this image gallery the quartzite that you are looking for please do not hesitate to contact us. We have a dedicated team who can assist you in selecting the right stone for your project or offer alternatives if needed.
Please note these images are put in place to give an idea of the colour and vein variations in the stones. Misconceptions sometimes occur because of the following reasons:
– Quartzite is a natural stone therefore its veining and pattern varies from batch to batch
– Slab and sample images are representational only. Due to changes in lighting quartzite slab and sample may appear different in pictures than it does in real life
– The displays of smart devices, tablets and personal computers sometimes interpret colours differently
We encourage all our customers to view the slabs in person whenever is possible
