Actually a pure quartz sandstone, quartzite is basically a metamorphic and non-foliated rock. Sandstone gets converted into quartzite through pressure and heating that occur due to tectonic compression inside orogenic belts. Generally white to grey in color, this natural stone also exists in different shades of red and pink because of varying proportions of iron oxides (Fe2O3) in it. Nevertheless, quartzite does occur in other colors, such as orange, blue, green and yellow.

Once used for making stone tools during the prehistoric era, quartzite currently finds applications in numerous fields, not just because of its color variants, but excellent properties. Its angular shape and hardness makes it apt for making railway ballast. In comparison to granite, it is more durable and resistant to stains and harsh weather conditions, hence extensively used in the construction sector as well as interior and exterior designing projects. Whether in the form of roofing/flooring material and wall cladding or as steps, risers, countertops and pavements, this stone is a popular choice among architects around the world.

India has massive deposits of quartzite in various states, including Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Haryana, Karnataka, Jharkhand and Madhya Pradesh. However, quartzite varieties that are specifically used for construction purposes are mainly quarried in Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh. Furthermore, major quartzite manufacturing factories in India are situated in the states of Haryana and Rajasthan.
