Quartzite is widely used in railway ballast and can also be used for walls, roofing, flooring, stair steps, and countertops. Quartzite is harder and more resistant to stains than granite and becoming more popular in kitchens. Disclaimer: NATURAL STONE IS CREATED BY MOTHER NATURE SO EACH SLAB IS UNIQUE.
