Silver quartzite is a very solid and dense rock. Quartzite is a metamorphic rock founded on sandstone. Sandstone is transformed to quartzite under high pressure and extreme heat. This stone boasts high frost- and slip resistance but low water absorption. It also shows resistance to acids, alkali and chlorine. Thanks to these properties, quartzite is often used in pool and spa areas.
Use: outdoor and indoor areas, floors, wall covering, stairs, bathroom
