Quartzite is a lesser known yet perfect countertop option for even the busiest kitchens, as the material features unmatched strength, beauty and durability. Similar to marble, quartzite is a metamorphic rock formed within the Earth’s crust, creating uniquely colored slabs for your kitchen countertops. If you are considering quartzite countertops in Milford, DE, Ancient Art Stone is only one call away.
Quartzite forms when a quartz-rich sandstone is exposed to intense heat and pressure during the shift of the tectonic plates. Through a process called metamorphism, the sand grains and silica in the sandstone are recrystallized, forming an incredibly strong natural stone with rich colors and eye-catching patterns. Quartzite with no impurities is pure white and even stronger, although it is rare and thus more expensive.

How to Clean Quartzite Countertops?
Homeowners seeking a virtually indestructible countertop material will find that quartzite is harder than glass. As with any natural stone, however, impure forms of quartzite are prone to staining and degradation from coffee, red wine, lemon juice and acidic cleaning solutions. As a result, all but a pure white material will require a daily cleaning with mild soap and an annual sealant to help protect it for years to come. With proper care and maintenance, a quartzite countertop can withstand anything that befalls your kitchen!
