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 Dark Quartzite family, much rarer.
Several quarries are explored in the region, therefore tones may vary from lighter to darker, with veins varying in thickness.
CHARACTERISTICS AND USE
Blue is among the most sought after tones, due to its neutrality and brilliance, making it an ideal color for most environments 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, with its potential to sublimate any "décor" with its natural and artistic quality, will complement all aesthetics.
