How Is Quartzite Made?

Quartzite is created from sandstone under high pressure and heat, with the recrystallization of sand grains resulting in a dense and hard rock. Its exceptional durability stems from its high quartz content, one of the hardest minerals on Earth, making quartzite highly resistant to weathering and erosion. Moreover, its resistance to chemical weathering makes it an excellent choice for both indoor and outdoor applications, ranging from countertops and flooring to outdoor landscaping and construction projects.
