QUARTZ

Analysis of this ornamental stone. Venezuela Quartzite is a highly-pure quartzite with a high mechanical resistance, formed mainly from recrystallized cream-coloured quartz, distributed homogeneously along a granoblastic matrix with a medium to fine grain size, and upon which melocratic dendrites of metallic minerals are often found, mainly iron and titanium oxides, fine white quartz veins with a larger grain size and small zircon and tourmaline inserts.

The medium to low value of the open porosity results in a reduced water-absorbing capacity, while also possessing a good degree of toughness when subjected to surface treatments. On the other hand, the low water absorption indicates that although there is a possibility of water retention, the quantities will be very small and therefore unlikely to produce adverse effects such as slipperiness or freezing in cold environments.
