Quartzite has the same types of veins and streaks as found in marble. It comes in white and gray most often, but it can also be found in red, yellow, blue, pink, green, and orange when iron oxide or other minerals are mixed in the stone.

Perfect for the kitchen
Quartzite is known for being a very durable and strong material, which makes it a perfect option for busy and frequently-used kitchens. This material is harder than quartz, granite, and marble, ensuring your investment in these countertops is one that will last. Quartzite will not warp or scratch as easily as other surfaces, although we do still recommend using cutting boards to protect your countertop surface.
Quartzite countertops do not require excessive maintenance. They do need to be sealed before you use them and re-sealed once or twice each year. With the seal in place, however, caring for your countertops is simply a matter of tidying up any accidental spills!
The natural streaks in quartzite create a look somewhere between stone and marble. The high-gloss finish can catch the light and make your whole kitchen look brighter. In addition, since quartzite is naturally-occurring, each slab is a bit different, making your kitchen counter a unique work of art.
Being heat-resistant means quartzite will not burn, melt or scorch the way laminate and man-made materials can. In addition, since it remains slightly cool, it creates a pleasant surface to work on and is perfect for completing kitchen tasks like rolling out the dough for bread or cookies.
