As you’ve been shopping around for your new counter tops, you are hit with a bit of a dilemma. Granite is tough as nails but seems a little out dated to you and you still want something beautiful and unique. So how about Marble? As you do more research you come to find that Marble with all its stunning beauty is just a little too weak to stand up to your culinary escapades. You don’t want to worry about every lime you slice or glass of wine you spill. Well now we can look at engineered stone.
Though, as you shop on, the connection just isn’t there. You can’t help but be smitten by the beauty of the natural stones you saw before. What to do?! Quartzite, that’s what you do! Quartzite is made in the Earth’s crust just like marble so you get all the stunning beauty of natural veins and variety of color. Interestingly though, instead of being formed from sandstone it’s formed from quartz sandstone.
Quartz crystals are incredibly hard, and thousands of years of intense heat and pressure don’t hurt either. All in all, quartzite is a beautiful addition to the selection of durable surfaces and well worth the consideration. This kitchen adorned in Calacatta Quartzite is reaping all the benefits of the natural beauty and high durability combo offered by Quartzite.
