ORIGINS AND ASPECT
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.
CHARACTERISTICS AND USE
Its creamy tone make it a very versatile rock, for both indoors and outdoors, as well as for furniture and craftsmanship.
Can be finished in a large variety of techniques, from polished tiles to flamed or antique, as well as sanding or smoothed.
This ornemental rock, capable of sublimating any "décor" with a natural effect, complements a high-end aesthetic. e
