Macaubas

Quartzite

Macaubas is a metamorphic rock that is formed when quartz rich sandstone is altered by heat, pressure and chemical activity. Macaubas quartzite is perfect for kitchen and bathroom applications, as well as outdoor living spaces.Most of the selections are in the grey and white tones, but certain minerals cast a spectrum of colors into the material. Quartzites are scratch and acid-resistant, so they will not etch. The hardness level can vary greatly; we recommend the material be sealed per your contractor’s direction. Acid resistance with a soft, elegant appearance makes Macaubas quartzite a popular material selection with our clients.
