Quartzite is an extremely hard and durable natural stone, ideal for any countertop surface because of its long-lasting strength and composition. The quartz pieces, when heated, recrystallize to form outstandingly decorative and beautiful, sparkling patterns, making quartzite aesthetically desirable by many home owners. Being naturally white in color, but having impurities mixed in, gorgeous colors and patterns can be created. The solid reasons behind quartzite being a popular choice for kitchen and bathrooms countertops include its exotic beauty, sparkling surface, durability and overall strength.
Being even harder than glass, it is strongly resistant to heat and cannot be etched by acids or water. With regular cleaning and occasional sealing, quartzite countertops keep your kitchens and bathroom vanities shining for a number of years to come.
Specifically, quartzite is a naturally found metaphoric rock, or a natural stone, in general. It is created when sandstone undergoes extreme pressure and heat under the earth’s crust. The quartzite is mined and sewn into the slabs that are precisely cut into countertops. The surfaces are professionally polished and sealed for ensuring beautiful appearance and 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.
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 low-quality material.
Keep in mind that in complex projects, quartzite countertops may cost more, since it must be cut by diamond blades to form countertops, which takes time and labor. On the other hand, quartz can just be molded to form literally any shape.
