QUARTZITOS

QUARTZITOS

When it comes to applied natural stones, quartzite is often referred to as the best of both worlds. Looking for the exotic coloring or elegante movement of a marble, but with the strength of a granite? Quartzites are one of the most physically durable and chemically resistant rocks found at Earth’s surface. Like other natural stones, quartzite is a mined stone and is considered high-end and luxurious.

Quartzite comes about when sandstone is altered by the heat, pressure, and chemical activity of metamorphism. On the Mohs scale of harness (1-10), quartzites register at 7 with granite trailing at 6-6.5 and marble at 3-5. Considering that you will get to admire the stone’s beauty for many years to come, choosing this natural stone may end up being the best decision you ever make for your home.

Aquarela Quartzite is an exotic quartzite with a high level of variation in its purple ‘running water’ shaped veins. It contains tones of deep to light purples, taupe, blues, occasionally streaks of orange and some crystal veins, which can be backlit. It is often used as a luxurious center piece in high end establishments. 

It has also been called; Aquarella, Aquarello, Acquarella, and Aqua Royal.
