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, with a wooden 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 dark color and deep tone make it a unique kind of 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.
These are the quintessential ornemental rocks, capable of creating outstanding "optical illusion" effects, while complementing a high-end aesthetic.
