Through a process of high heat and pressure, sandstone is transformed into an extremely durable natural stone called quartzite. Generally found in neutral white, grey and brown tones, quartzite has the appearance of marble but is closer to granite in terms of durability against scratching and etching. Finishes for natural stone vary by availability.
