There are many materials available for countertops. Quartzite is a Natural Stone that is on the top of many designers short list of countertop possibilities. Why? There are a lot of reasons. Quartzite slabs are available in a wide range of colors. Their veining patterns emote the feeling of Marble while being harder and therefore requiring less maintenance. Their veining and color variations continue to provide excitement long after they are installed. The trend today is to supply both Marble and Quartzite in a satin finish. We call this a hone finish. Its low luster speaks of elegance and sophistication.
Quartzite is often confused with Quartz materials.
Quartz is the name that is commonly used in the Stone trade for the man-made stone products. These include Silestone, Caesarstone and a large number of other engineered materials. How did these materials come to be called Quartz? Probably, because, they all contain high percentages of natural quartz bound together with a special resin. The quartz slabs are used in many projects as a substitute for natural stone. These have a totally different look, but, are popular choices as well.
