Crystal White Quartzite is a naturally occurring metamorphic rock. It is created when sandstone is subjected to extreme heat and pressure caused by tectonic plate compression in the crust of the earth. The stone is mined and sawn into slabs which are later precisely cut to become countertops.
Benefits: Quartzite is harder than granite, so it is quite durable. Quartzite is more heat resistant than Quartz and Granite. Quartzite is more scratch-resistant compared to Quartz and Granite.
