Natural Quartzite in stock
Quartzite is a natural stone which is found in deposits throughout the world. It is a metamorphic rock, meaning it is transformed from its original material through immense pressures and temperatures. The starting point is mainly quartz sandstone which reforms as quartzite over a period of thousands of year.
Our natural quartzite originates mainly from quarries in Brazil, with further supplies coming from China, Australia and the USA. It is supplied to us as stone slabs which our our expert stone masons prepare and finish for installation as kitchen worktops in our clients’ homes, and also in bars and restaurants.
As a natural product, every quartzite slab is unique in terms of colours and patterning. Most quartzite deposits are of white, grey and black stone, with variations caused by a small presence among the original sandstone of minerals with red, blue, yellow and green hues. The visual effect is more subtle than highly dramatic and full of natural style.
When you order a quartzite worktop based on seeing samples, you might find that the final stone is bit different from the sample itself – it is simply not possible to predict exactly what your delivered stone will look like. It will always be an absolute delight, and countless customers have been 100% delighted with the stones the worktops they have ordered from samples. There is however an alternative approach.
How to know for sure what your quartzite worktop will look like
There is no substitute for seeing the actual stone before you place an order. We can always provide samples and photographs of quartzite stones, but actually getting up close to the stone you are buying is the only sure-fire way of knowing exactly what you are getting.
That is exactly why we keep a stock of stone slabs at our showroom outside Arundel in West Sussex. It’s not an option you’ll find offered by the great majority of kitchen companies in the south of England, but we know how important viewing before you buy can be for our customers.
When you visit our showroom, our team will be happy to show you the full selection of the stones we hold in stock. You will be able to see every swirl and vein in detail, as well as the tones and shades of colour in the stone. If any of the stones are what you are looking for, you can put your name on it there and then.
A bespoke quartzite worktop for your kitchen
The next step is for our highly experienced fitting team to visit your home to measure up a template for your worktop, including every recess, nook and cranny as well as the location of pipes for taps, and areas for sinks, cable boxes or other elements. The thoroughness and accuracy of our team’s work is absolutely essential for a flawless fit.
With the template in the capable hands of our stonemasons, your stone will be cut to the exact size and shape required for your kitchen. It will be given edges, polished and finshed as you require, ready for the fitters to return to your home and install it. We never leave a site until our clients are delighted with the fitting, and we leave your home perfectly clean and tidy.
