Quartzite (natural stone) is often confused with quartz (man-man stone) but it’s a separate, naturally occurring stone that is quarried similar to granite .
Quartzite can exceptionally strong in density, and hardness compared to granite. The strength, abrasion resistance and weathering durability are very high which means it will hold up to almost anything and is more scratch and stain resistant than most other stone options.
Sidenote: If you like the look of marble but you dont want the upkeep that comes with it then you will love quartzite. It has the look of marble without the hassle or headache. It’s much easier to care for, so if maintenance is an issue that keeps you from marble, this is a great alternative.
