Quartzite is sandstone that has metamorphized into stunning gems through the process of geological heating and tectonic pressure. Quartzite’s bold, natural veining patterns make it a valuable and prized addition to any home or business. It’s heat-proof and resistant to scratching, but it’s more prone to staining. This means your quartzite countertops and backsplash should be sealed twice a year to keep them in top condition. Regardless, the additional maintenance is worth it. Quartzite is an adventurous design choice that’s not only beautiful to behold, but which will add value to your renovation for years to come.
