Quartzite - Quartzite Stones

Quartzite is a hard, metamorphic rock which was originally sandstone. Quartzite is very resistant to chemical weathering and often forms ridges and resistant hilltops. The nearly pure silica content of the rock provides little to form soil from and therefore the quartzite ridges are often bare or covered only with a very thin soil and little vegetation. The quartzites are normally water resistant.

Quartzite


Properties of Quartzite



Physically they are very Hard, Compact, Fine grained, equi-granular homogeneous rocks of metamorphic nature .

Color: Minor color tonal variations exist but within the tolerance limit.
Hardness: 6.5 to 7 on Moh's Scale
Density: 2.3 to 2.4 Kg/cm3
Compressive Strength: 90 to 140 N/mm2
Modulus of Rupture: 16-40 N/mm2
Water Absorption: 1.0 - 1.2 %
Porosity: Low to very low
Weather Impact: Resistant

Chemically they are very resistant Mono-Mineralic rocks, principally composed of silica. The other minor constituents vary from origin to origin

SiO2: 95-97%
Iron (Fe2O3): 0.5%-1.5%
Alumina (Al2O3): 1 to 1.5%
Soda (Na2O) & Potash (Kro): Less then 1%
Lime (CaO): Less then 0.5%
Magnesia (MgO): Less then 0.5%
Loss On Ignition (LOI): Less then 0.5%
