    How can I make sure stone is quartzite?


    How can I be sure that a stone is a quartzite? Is there a way to check just by looking at it or even by checking with a manufacturer etc.? Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

    "Hi There,

    One of the ways to do so is by getting a sample of the stone in question. Then, you can use a shape knife to cut up its surface.

    If the cut you've made scratches the stone, then it is a quartzite. And if the stone crumbles across the cut, it is a marble.

    If you are still unsure, you could send us images to recognise these stones."

    "Good question! Not really sure how to check if a stone is quartzite?
    I’m sure if you phoned a Memorial Stonemason/ Headstone Mason they would know the Answer or Google it?
    Good luck
