Quartzite stone is very resistant to weathering and useful in railway floors due to its high hardness and sharp corners

It is also used for stone facades of buildings and wall coverings. Quartzite stone can also be used for the floor, on the surface of stairs or roof tiles. Compared to many other rocks, quartzite is resistant to cold and heat, acidic materials and abrasion and does not disappear over time.
Quartzite stone can also be used for the floor, on the surface of stairs or roof tiles. Pure quartzite can be used in the production of ferrosilicon (cesium and iron alloy), industrial silicon, silica and silicon carbide. Quartzite rock is formed due to increased metamorphism in sandstone.

When the Sandstone is transformed into quartzite, the quartz grains that were already there are crystallized again along with the cementitious material that was previously present in the sandstone, and the new quartz crystals are fused together. Most or all of the old sandstone texture and sedimentary structure will be completely removed by metamorphism and replaced by a new structure.

During the metamorphic and recrystallization process, only small amounts of cementitious materials such as iron oxide, carbonate, and clay are transferred, leaving traces of them on quartzite. Quartzite is often confused with granite, which is much harder than Granite and has a rough, crystalline appearance. The colors of this stone are mostly burnt brown, red and gray. One of the very significant advantages of this stone is its reasonable and low price, and therefore it can be seen more in rural buildings.
