Quartzites are the metamorphosed sandstones formed in the deep earth due to high temperature and pressure. They are harder than Quartz, Granite, and even steel. Compared to granites these stones have very fewer color variations such as white and gray, with black and brown tinges. But color variations do occur due to the chemical elements such as pink (iron), green (copper), red, blue, green, yellow, or orange. Because of other excellent qualities, quartzites can not be easily dismissed based on limited color choices. Quartzite countertops are a great choice if you are planning to renovate your kitchen! Quartzite stones are highly durable and look fantastic with their calming colors and flow textures.
