Quartzite counter-tops are among the hardest and most beautiful of all natural stone counter-tops available. Many quartzite counter-tops look like marble but do not etch at all. And, they do not scratch nor stain easily. However, be careful because to make easy sales, many stone shops are calling marbles a quartzite. Quartzite counter-tops are often even harder than granite and can often only be cut with a water-jet. Traditional diamond blade technology is sometimes not enough to get the job done.
