Quartzite is becoming more and more popular in home décor renovation projects. Its elegant appearance and quality makes quartzite an eligible option for your next project. In this article, we will consider all there is to know about this natural stone and the preferable application areas for your residential or commercial spaces.

Many people mix quartzite with quartz but they are very different. Quartz is man-made while quartzite is a natural stone, similar to granite or marble. This natural stone originates as sandstone. The stone’s transformation occurs over a certain period of time through a process that involves intense application of pressure and heat. Like other natural stones, it is durable, unique and strong. These are among the main reasons why more people begin to choose quartzite when they engage in interior design projects.

Quartzite offers a variety of different textures as well as finishes including polished and honed options. Like any natural stone, it is very durable, however, it is crucial that the material needs to be properly sealed. A well-sealed quartzite would last longer and is less likely to worn out. Even though, quartzite has less pores comparing the other natural stones, it can hold stains if not maintained and/or sealed properly.
