What is Quartzite?

Quartzite is a naturally occurring metamorphic rock. It is created when sandstone is subjected to extreme heat and pressure. Quartzite is usually white or light-colored because quartz sand is light colored. Additional minerals carried by groundwater can impart hues of green, blue, or iron-red.
