What are the different types of natural stones?
Quartzite is a very hard metamorphic rock that began as sandstone and was transformed into an extremely strong and durable natural stone when the empty spaces between the sandstone were filled with the mineral quartz and fused together under heat and pressure.
On the Mohs scale of hardness, from 1 to 10 with 10 being the hardest, granite measures in at around 6, and quartzite measures in at approximately 7. This means quartzite is actually harder than granite
Granite is an igneous rock composed of grains of compressed quartz, feldspar, mica, and similar materials. This means that granite is slightly harder than marble. Granite easily resists scratches and damage from heat, making it an ideal material for kitchen counters both inside the home and outside. Granite counters will not scuff or discolor from everyday household activities. On the Mohs scale of hardness, granite has a hardness of around 6 to 7 on the Mohs scale.
Marble is limestone that has been compacted and heated over millions of years. As a result, marble is less porous and slightly stronger than limestone, but still less durable than granite. Marble has a hardness of 3 to 5 on the Mohs scale.
