Quarzite is often confused with quartz, but it’s a separate, naturally occurring stone that is quarried in a similar way to granite.
- Quartzite has the look of marble, but it’s much easier to care for, so if maintenance is an issue that keeps you from marble, this is a great alternative.
- Quartzite tends toward the hard side of natural stone, so that means it won’t wear down or develop problems in the short term.
- Cleaning quartzite is simple. Soap and warm water will make the surface look fantastic. There isn’t a need for unusual cleaners. The only thing to consider is you’ll need to clean up spills fairly quickly, but most of us do that anyway.
- Quartzite is highly resistant to UV rays, which is fantastic if you’re using it in an outdoor setting or in a room that gets tons of direct, natural light. You won’t have to worry about fading at all.
- Knives may mark this surface up when used directly on it. A cutting board for chopping is advised.
- While heat helped quartzite form, that doesn’t necessarily mean it stands up well under direct heat for a long period of time. That means you’ll need pot holders or trivets when dealing with a pan or dish directly from the oven or stovetop.
- This versatile stone can be used in a lot of places and a lot of ways. Your best bet is to contact us to discuss just what you can do with this natural stone product that can help your home have that breathtaking look with durability that you’ll be pleased with.
