Quartzite is a natural stone that often has a bright color, impressive undertones and deep long veins that create a marble-like look. It’s a metamorphic rock that forms under intense heat and pressure with overtime. One of the most prominent qualities of quartzite is its very high resistance to many chemicals, extreme temperatures, and scratching. It is also quarried and cut into slabs just like marble or granite. Since quartzite slabs are ultra-strong and more durable compared to many other natural stone slabs, quartzite countertop and quartzite worktops have gained popularity as an ideal choice for interior design projects, kitchen remodels and bathroom remodels. Quartzite offers a bright and sophisticated look with crystalline sparkle. Moreover, you can choose from a wide range of quartzite colors. You can choose more earth-toned quartzite shades like Taj Mahal Quartzite, Storm Sand Quartzite, Platinum Quartzite or Chateau Blanc Quartzite to create a transitional kitchen or a rustic kitchen. You can pair these versatile slabs with pastel kitchen cabinets to create a harmonious and serene atmosphere in your home, or you can go for pairing earthy-toned quartzite with bold and vivid kitchen cabinets to achieve a more dramatic look. You can also find light-colored quartzite slabs, such as White Storm Quartzite, Bianco Superiero Quartzite, Calacatta Quartzite, Ice Flake Quartzite or Opus White Quartzite. These colors work very well with traditional and classic kitchens. By going for a lighter colored quartzite slab, you can make your kitchen appear bigger and feel more spacious. Also, you can pair lighter colored quartzite with raised panel kitchen counters or shaker style kitchen counters to create an inviting traditional kitchen. If you want a more elevated and sophisticated design, you should take a closer look at darker quartzite colors like Arizona Night Quartzite, Belvedere Quartzite or Full Moon Quartzite. These slabs complement modern kitchens and highlight the unique aspects of your kitchen design. You can go for a sleek and minimalistic design for your kitchen by incorporating darker colored quartzite slabs.
Quartzite offers a marble-like look: Intricate hues, elegant veins, beautiful colors and impressive swirls.

Both being metamorphic rocks, quartzite and marble are almost identical in appearance but quartzite offers a significant set of benefits including improved durability and cost-efficiency. Due to their chemical differences, marble is soft but quartzite is very hard. That is why quartzite offers more durability and resistance to heat, scratches, chemicals and acid. If you want to make sure that your kitchen countertop or bathroom countertop looks as good as new even after decades, you should go for quartzite instead of marble. Offering a wide range of colors and hues, quartzite slabs highlight the natural beauty of big and small kitchens.

Quartzite countertop prices generally range between $60 to $80 per square foot. This price range can go as high as $130 and above depending on the quality of the material. We recommend you to purchase higher quality quartzite countertops as their mere existence will add astonishment to your kitchen decoration and add value to your property for reselling.
Quartzite countertops are naturally formed in nature through transformation. When ample amounts of sandstone or chert rich in sparkling quartz crystals experience high amounts of heat and pressure they produce quartzite.
Cleaning your quartzite countertops on a daily basis will help preserve their beauty. If you are not often using your countertops, then doing this on a monthly basis would be sufficient.
To seal your quartzite countertops you will first need to acquire a high-quality sealer. After you get your sealer, start by cleaning the surface of your countertop then pour a small amount of the sealer on top of the surface. Evenly distribute the sealer and wait until it dries. Once dried, apply a second layer on top of the first one. Once the second layer has dried, clean the excess material with a clean cloth. Now you can enjoy your newly sealed quartzite countertops.
While highly durable, quartzite countertops must not be cleaned with strong chemicals and alkaloids. We recommend that you utilize dish soap and warm water for simplicity. You can create a mixture with these ingredients and wipe the surface with a clean wool cloth. Make sure to do this on a regular basis to help preserve the durability of your quartzite countertops.
