Quarzite is harder than granite, and especially harder than marble, making it more durable. It takes less maintenance than other countertops. Although quartzite is heat and scratch resistant, it needs to be sealed to protect it from spills of acidic liquids such as wine or orange juice.
During the Stone Age when flint was not available, quartzite was often used as a replacement.
Quartzite is very versatile in construction and is used as flooring, decorative wall coverings, and roofing.
Quartzite tends to be very strong and thick so it is taken from the Earth's surface rather than mined underground.
