Quartzite is a naturally occurring metamorphic rock created when sandstone is under extreme heat and pressure.  Quartzite is can be compared to marble in looks although it has much less maintenance and at times more cost efficient in price. It is both durable and strong, and its crystalline sparkle is sophisticated and trendy. Quartzite is ideal for any countertop surface due to its strength and long-lasting composition. When deciding on what to use for your next countertop surface, consider quartzite countertops for its strength, beauty, and overall durability. At The Stone Shop we sell a wide variety of colors including the most popular neutral and earth-tone hues.
