If you love the look of marble (who doesn’t?!) but are worried about the maintnence and etching, Quartzite is a great alternative. Quartzite is a natural stone that begins as sandstone and over time synthesizes into a durable surface. You can use Quartzite almost anywhere in your home including kitchen countertops, flooring and wall applications. I particularly like the white tones for kitchen countertops and the more vibrant colors for wall applications.
