Alta quartzite is a grey-green, shimmering silver, extremely dense fine to medium grained stone with a prominent parallel texture. Due to the strict alignment of the mineralogical constituents, Alta quartzite cleavage is very flat and in a single direction. The principal mineralogical constituents are quartz, mica and feldspar. With around 66 per cent by volume, quartz represents the principal constituent of the stone.
Due to its exceptional hardness, easy cleaning and every good wear properties, Alta quartzite has been used around the world in recent years in the interior and outdoor parts of many public area as wall, floor and staircase covering. Alta quartz is recommended particularly for very heavily frequented areas, such as in train stations, urban rail systems, metro systems and airports.
