Quartzite is a pretty new to the natural stone options that add to the décor of the home. It presents an exciting option owing to the fact that it resembles marble in beauty and longevity.
Quartzite slabs are increasingly becoming an exciting and popular option in home applications such as countertops and backsplashes. The slabs are available in many beautiful colors, patterns, and textures.
Quartzite is a more expensive stone and therefore finds great use as a long-term and high-end application in the kitchen and the bathroom.

Differences in Quartzite Slabs

Quartzite is available in two different options that include hard and soft quartzite.

Hard Quartzite

It is the most durable form of quartzite and rivals the durability of granite. The slabs will not stain, scratch or corrode upon contact with acid.

Soft Quartzite

Its durability is between that of granite and marble. Soft quartzite is more durable than marble but falls short of matching the durability of granite. The reason being that soft quartzite contains calcium carbonate which makes it susceptible to acid etching.

However, both soft and hard quartzites are good options for countertops, backsplashes, and other applications.
