Quartzite is a hard, metamorphic rock which was originally sandstone.
Quartzite is a form of metamorphosed sandstones in which silica or quartz has been deposited between the grains of quartz of which sandstone is essentially composed. Unlike sands stone, quartzite breaks through not around the quartz grains, producing a smooth surface instead of a rough and granular one. These are fireproof and non-slippery natural quartzite.
Quartzite is very resistant to chemical weathering and often forms ridges and resistant hilltops. The nearly pure silica content of the rock provides little to form soil from and therefore the quartzite ridges are often bare or covered only with a very thin soil and little vegetation.View all collection
