The gorgeous Emerald Green quartzite natural stone is a favourite of architects and interior designers for its intense, rich green hue and distinctive veining patterns. This stunning stone occurs when sandstone undergoes transformation and has been prevalent in ornamental architecture and design for ages.

Emerald Green quartzite is a metamorphic rock (originally a sandstone) primarily made of quartz. The minerals chlorite, epidote, and others give it its green colour.
Although green quartzite and green marble can be green, they form through very different processes over time.
Marble is a metamorphic rock created by heat and pressure from limestone or dolomite. Compared to quartzite, it is comparatively soft and porous and primarily made of calcite or dolomite.
On the other side of the spectrum, sandstone or sedimentary rock rich in quartz can undergo metamorphism to become quartzite. As a result, it is extremely tough and long-lasting and primarily made of quartz.
The fundamental distinction between green quartzite and green marble is that the former is significantly tougher, more resilient, and more abrasion and weather resistant than the latter. In addition, quartzite is less porous than marble.
