Project Description

Quartzite Countertops

Quartzite will not depreciate with time and will continuously add value to any property where they are installed. Unlike synthetics, quartzite presents a surface depth that seems almost three-dimensional. It has a luminance that’s absent from other surfaces. Regardless of its finish, quartzite creates an immediate impression of elegance, and is considered a definite plus on any real estate broker’s checklist.  This is a popular choice for countertop fabricators in Kansas City.

A-Right Where Does Quartzite Come From?

Most quartzite used in kitchen countertops and bathroom vanities can be found and mined in Brazil.  It’s often the rock that is found at the crest of mountain ranges as exposed bedrock.  Little or no soil cover it.  It’s tough and durable enough to withstand weathering & erosion.

Quartzite is also one of the most chemical resistant rocks found on the face of the earth.  This makes it the perfect material for countertop fabricators in Kansas City.

A-Right What Is a Granite Countertop Made Of?

Quartzite is a hard, non-foliated metamorphic rock which was originally pure quartz sandstone.  Sandstone is converted into quartzite through heating and pressure usually related to tectonic compression within orogenic belts. Pure quartzite is usually white to grey, though quartzites often occur in various shades of pink and red due to varying amounts of iron oxide (Fe2O3). Other colors, such as yellow, green, blue and orange, are due to other mineral impurities.

A-Right It Looks Like Marble But Acts Like Granite

No two slabs are exactly the same.  It’s durable and veining varies from slab to slab and it has that depth that you see in granite. If stone is your favorite, natural quartzite could be a good choice for you.  It already is for countertop fabricators in Kansas City.

The veining creates elegant movement and the neutral colors complement any design.  It’s luxurious and durable stone.  Perfect for upscale-elegant countertops that is unmatched by any other stone countertop.

A-Right Quartzite Cleaning (Recommendations)

Quartzite’s hardness protects it from scratching and etching, but it does need sealing to help it resist stains. Other than that, natural quartzite care is simple. Wipe frequently with a damp cloth and use mild soaps or stone cleaners. Avoid abrasives scrubs to maintain a “like-new” appearance.
