Quartzite on one hand, contains minerals and nothing else. Quartz, the mineral, is the main ingredient. A quartzite stone is 100% natural and comes directly from the earth, made from geologic processes, over millions of years. Some types of quartzite contain smaller amounts of other minerals that give the stone color and character. The most well-known quartzite quarries are located in Brazil, though there are quarries along the planet including in Canada, India, Italy, Norway, and Sweden. Conditions such as the depth at which quartz is formed and the time it spends under the earth defines how porous a quartzite is, resulting in the conditions it can endure.
