With its durability and stunning appearance, Quartzite has found its way into the Australian homes over the last few years. Quartzite is an excellent option for the countertop as they mimic the appearance of marble. However, it is easy to get confused with Quartzite and Quartz as they both contain the natural stone quartz. But, the two countertop stones are different. While quartz countertops are made of engineered stone, quartzite is a natural stone.

Despite the love of many homeowners and interiors designers, there are still some questions about whether or not to seal the countertops made of Quartzite slabs Sydney. However, quartzite requires sealing to ensure its longevity, and the liquids do not seep in and cause damages to the countertop.

When compared to granite and marble slabs Sydney, Quartzite countertops are equally durable and stronger. Quartzite is available in a wide range of shades, and it is a popular choice for today’s modern kitchens. In fact, Quartzite is the epitome of luxury when compared to other natural stones.

Quartzite is formed naturally and it is a form of sandstone that is formed by the heat and pressure under the Earth’s crust.
