For a kitchen or bathroom countertop that will see a great amount of use, quartzite may be the right stone to choose. Pure quartzite countertops are typically a white or gray shade, but when the stone has a presence of additional minerals it can be found in a wide variety of vivid colors like green, blue, or red. Therefore, finding a quartzite slab to match your kitchen or bathroom’s style and color scheme is never a problem. Quartzite is able to handle high heat very well and is harder than granite and a much harder material than marble. This decreases its susceptibility to damages from regular wear and tear that medium to heavily used kitchens and bathrooms normally see.
