Often the forgotten sibling of the stone family, Quartzite’s soft lines and visual texture are fluid and inviting, like gentle ocean waves. Its divine elegance stands equal to even the highest quality alternatives. Quartzite is one of the hardest stones available – comparable to granite in terms of hardness – ranking a little higher, about a 7 on the Mohs Hardness Scale. One of the better qualities of quartzite is that it will not etch from acids like lemon juice or vinegar unlike marble. This makes it one of the more sought after natural stone slabs to highlight homes across the globe.
