Quartzite

Quartzite

Is composed of sandstone that has been metamorphosed. Quartzite is much harder than the parent rock, sandstone. It forms from sandstone that has come into contact with deeply buried magmas. Quartzite looks similar to its parent rock. The best way to tell quartzite from sandstone is to break the rocks. Sandstone will shatter into many individual grains of sand while quartzite will break across the grains.

· High abrasion resistance.
· It is anti skidding.
· Does not retain water.

Uses:

Excellent for pool decks, pool coping, floor and wall covering.
