Quartzite is a hard, non-foliated metamorphic rock which was originally pure quartz sandstone, with a conchoidal fracture, and usually light colors.

Quarried in Brazil's Central region, this rock belongs to the Light Quartzite family, with a cristaline undertone.

Several quarries are explored in the region, therefore tones may vary from lighter to darker, with veins varying in thickness.
