A Unique Color and a Rough Texture
Desert Quartzite - our new pool deck and patio stone, is available at our New Jersey stone yard, or shipped nationwide. This stone is generally lighter colored so it doesn't get nearly as hot as many other types of pool deck or patio stone.

Metamorphic Strong and Durable Stone
Desert Quartzite is a quartzite stone meaning it is a hard, durable metamorphic rock which was once sandstone. The sandstone is converted into quartzite through heating and pressure. Quartzite can have a glassy look and the stone can resemble marble. The stone is primarily white or gray but a great mix of accent colors are present. These accent colors are due to a mix of mineral impurities such as iron oxide in the stone.
