Quartzite is a hard, non-foliated metamorphic rock and it forms when silica-rich sandstone is altered by metamorphism. Unlike marble, which is mainly formed of calcite, this rock type is quartz based, therefore it is tougher and more resistant to stains, acids and abrasion. With its Mohs hardness of 7, quartzite is one of the hardest natural materials used in the dimension stone industry.
