How durable is quartzite? Quartzite is one of the hardest natural stones according to the Mohs scale. It’s actually slightly harder than granite! Quartzite is a metamorphic rock, composed mostly of quartz crystals, which is what makes it so hard. Most quartzite is scratch-resistant and all quartzite is heat-resistant. Quartzite has been gaining rapid popularity in recent years due to its hard nature and often exotic looks. It offers a timeless, natural look similar to many marbles—plus the added durability that marble lacks. Quartzite has been used for kitchen countertops for many years, although it was never as popular as it is now. Slabs tend to have many natural veins, giving it unique patterns with subtle movements and often eye-catching colors. Quartzite slabs can be found in a wide range of colors, including grey, white, beige, pink, yellow, blue, purple, orange, and brown. Quartzite slabs are available in a polished finish, and sometimes leathered and honed finishes. Browse our full inventory of quartzite slabs online.
