 Beside the feature of durability, there are many other seasons so that more and more designers and homeowners select it as their home ornament materials. Do you know what else?

Initially, quartz stone tile is a natural with high stain resistance. Quartzite is one of the densest natural stones in the world with low porosity which provides a natural resistance to stains. Unless the quartzite is used in cooking or eating areas it should not require sealing providing spillages are wiped up and not left to soak into the stone.

Secondly, is a hard natural stone with soft environmental footprint. Quartzite is as it comes from the earth - completely natural. Other than cutting the sides and grinding the base of each and paver, there is no manufacturing process. The stone is untreated with any form of chemical. It is so hard that it wears out diamond tipped cutting wheels quickly.

Meanwhile, it is one of the hardest stones which are a blessing because it can handle high traffic areas easily. And the most important is that it does not need sealers though sometimes they are applied just to make cleaning a little easier.

Finally, the quartz stone is with low maintenance, since nothing natural stone is tougher than quartzite tiles and pavers. For that quartzite is made up of grains of quartz, which is one of the hardest minerals, cemented together by silica that give it a reflective quality. The colors range between a blend of light and dark grey through to orange and rust hues. When held to the light, the tiles can sparkle with silver flecks as the light bounces off the quartz particles.
