"... Shimmering and sparkling with tiny quartzite crystals..."
Quartzite is a rock similar to slate with a medium grained texture and incredible durability.
Differing mineral content creates many color variations, from the sedate white, gray or beige to more adventurous shades of purple and pink.
Quartzite is widely used for wall veneers and decorative tiles.
A naturally non-skid texture makes it a perfect candidate for flooring indoors and out, including areas with heavy traffic and exposure to the elements.
