Here are four questions you may want to know more about before purchasing quartzite for your home, office or business:
How Quartzite Is Made.
Quartzite is a natural stone that was originally sandstone. Over millennia, the heat and pressure from natural processes transform the sandstone into quartzite by crystallizing its structure, providing the glassy appearance of the material.
Where does the name quartzite come from?
This stone’s term is ‘quartzite’ because it comprises primarily natural quartz (silica).
Are Quartzite and Quartz The Same?
Don’t confuse it with ‘quartz’, the generic term for engineered quartz. Quartz is the common term given to artificial stone materials currently on the market by brands such as Silestone, Caesarstone, Quartzforms, Compac Surfaces Company, etc.
Can Quartzite Handle Heat?
Yes. Quartzite can withstand temperatures of over 200°C without altering its surface. Furthermore, the melting temperature for quartzite starts at 625-650°C and has a maximum temperature of 900-1000°C. Unlike manufactured quartz, natural quartzite does not contain polymer resins, ensuring it never develops surface burning or scorching.

Quartzite is a metamorphic rock that was once a sandstone. When sandstone suffers exposure to natural pressure and heat over long periods, it crystallizes its silica (natural quartz) content, becoming quartzite.
Quartzite has the following mineral composition (petrographical classification):
A siliceous natural stone composed primarily (90-99 per cent) of natural quartz. It may also contain trace amounts of iron oxide, zircon, magnetite, rutile and mica.
The compositions of quartzite change depending on the minerals composing each rock and its origins.

Yes. Although the material is available in honed, another popular quartzite texture is the leather finish because it provides a matte surface with a delicate tactile finish.
Yes. Green quartzite, like any natural stone, is porous due to its surface's micro-permeable nature.
When a stone is porous, it can absorb liquids through micropores and its interfacial texture. To minimize quartzite's porosity, spread a natural stone sealant over the surface every 18-24 months.
Yes. If the chip or scratch in your green quartzite worktop is over 5 mm deep, this part of the stone may discolour.
You can repair chips on Persa Green quartzite by applying colour-matched stone resin, restoring the non-porosity in the affected area. A professional worktop installer may also buff the top layer of the quartzite to remove superficial scratches.
Yes. Persa Green is a perfectly suitable quartzite for kitchens because, unlike other natural stones such as marble or limestone, it is not affected when exposed to acids from foods, juices, and other substances.

These come as paper, gel or powder. Moreover, some poultices are absorbent and excellent for eliminating specific stains. Here are the nine most effective granite and quartzite stones:
- Diatomaceous earth
Clay and diatomaceous earth are typically the best choices. However, if the clay or chalk contains iron, you should not use it. The acidic substances can react with the iron and create yellow staining, especially in light-coloured worktops.
