Marble & Quartzite
Marble is a type of metamorphic rock that is known for its beauty and natural look. Although it is one of the stones that requires extensive care and application of sealer, some choose it as countertop material in kitchens and bathrooms. Its use in shower walls and on fireplaces is very common. Quartzite is a naturally- occurring metamorphic rock. Created when sandstone is subjected to extreme heat and pressure. The stone is mined and sawn into slabs which are later cut to become countertops. The tops are polished and sealed for beauty and durability.
