Quartzite is a natural stone, formed under the Earth. This stone can be classified as a Metamorphic rock, meaning that over time, layers upon layers of sandstone are subjected to heat and pressure, to form the beautiful stone pieces that we use to make your dream project. The stone is then quarried from the Earth in big chunks or “slabs”. From these slabs, we then custom cut your countertops to your exact measurements. Due to the porous nature of Quartzite, your countertops MUST be sealed, ideally once a year.
