Many homeowners and designers seeking beauty and durability are increasingly choosing quartzite countertops. Quartzite is a natural metamorphic rock formed from sandstone under high heat and pressure. Quartzite becomes hard and resilient like granite after this process.
Quartzite’s appearance is striking. Its subtle yet elegant veining pattern can resemble marble, giving it a luxurious look and greater durability. Quartzite’s pure whites, grays, and earth tones make it versatile for design.
Quartzite countertops combine elegance and functionality perfectly. Their marble-like appearance and granite-like durability make them a popular choice for adding luxury and functionality to spaces.

Quartzite is a natural stone formed from sandstone under high pressure and temperature, while quartz is an engineered stone made from natural quartz crystals combined with resins and pigments. Quartzite has a more natural look, akin to marble, and is known for its durability and hardness, whereas quartz offers a wider range of colors and patterns due to its engineered nature.
Quartzite is extremely durable and resistant to scratches and heat, making it an excellent choice for kitchen countertops. It’s harder than granite and marble, which adds to its durability. However, like all natural stones, it can still be susceptible to severe impacts.
Quartzite requires sealing upon installation and periodic resealing to protect it from stains, as it is porous. Regular cleaning with mild soap and water is recommended. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that can damage the stone’s surface.
The cost of quartzite countertops can be on the higher end, similar to or sometimes exceeding high-quality granite or marble. Prices vary depending on the rarity of the stone, color, pattern, and complexity of the installation. Call us at 623-606-7610 to schedule a 100% free in-home estimate.
