How to know the difference between quartzite vs. quartz
Many people and even industry experts get confused between the two materials. Clients always like to educate themself about the materials to choose the best ones, thus, I chose to write a short blog about the difference between quartzite vs. quartz.
The first and most significant distinction is that quartzite is a natural stone and quartz is man-made. All in all, quartzite is separated from the earth though quartz is a designed composite, frequently made to look like normal stone.
For some's purposes, the uniqueness and intrinsic irregularity in the veining and hue of quartzite (natural stone) upgrade its appeal and excellence. For other people, the consistency and redundancy in the veining and shading of quartz (man-made composite) is a quality they like.
Both quartzite and quartz are truly tough choices for the countertops in your house. While quartzite in its natural structure can be significantly more diligently than granite, it loses a portion of that strength when it goes through the pressure handling that is expected to set it up for procurement. Eventually, natural quartzite is as yet more diligently and more scratch safe than man-made quartz. In addition, quartz comes in different patterns and colors as the pigment added to quartz can be utilized to accomplish a wide range of varieties of blue, pink, violet, and orange, while quartzite comes primarily in shades of white or gray.
When it comes to heat resistance, quartzite wins over quartz. However, when it comes to stain resistance, quartz wins over quartzite. Furthermore, quartzite is more scratch- and acid-resistant and that’s why it is more expensive than the quartz
