Quartzite is an extremely hard and durable natural stone, ideal for any countertop surface because of its long-lasting strength and composition. It combines the toughness of quartz with the variegated patterning of marble, creating an alluring combination. Quartzite is a popular choice for kitchen countertops and bathroom vanities because of its exotic beauty, sparkling surface, and overall durability.
With regular cleaning and occasional sealing, quartzite countertops keep your kitchen countertops and bathroom vanities aesthetically pleasing for years.
Quartzite is a metamorphic rock that originated as sandstone. It is created when sandstone undergoes extreme pressure and heat under the earth’s crust. Quartzite is mined and cut into the slabs, which eventually become your countertops. The surfaces are professionally polished and sealed ensuring a beautiful appearance and lasting durability.
Don’t confuse quartz with quartzite as quartz countertops are mostly re-engineered countertops, manufactured from natural quartz and artificial materials including pigments and binder. Quartzite is a natural stone derived from mother earth.
On average, the cost of quartzite countertops is equal to that of quartz, i.e. $45 to $95 per square foot. The price can be as low as $40 to $60 per square foot, for lower-quality material.
Keep in mind that in complex projects, quartzite countertops may cost more, since quartzite must be cut by diamond blades, which takes time and labor. On the other hand, quartz can just be molded to form literally any shape.
