The epitome of natural beauty, and reminiscent of the regal beauty of its name sake, the Taj Mahal, this Brazilian quartzite is the height of luxury in natural stone. The cloudy, warm beige tones combined with the intricate, unique veining throughout the slab make this a stone that’s impossible to imitate and sought after across the globe.
Quartzite is a distinctive natural stone that is different from marble in that it does not contain calcium, a mineral that can cause a vulnerability in the stone, particularly to acidic products. Taj Mahal will not etch in the way that marble does when exposed to foods like lemons and oranges, with high acidic content. Therefore, Taj Mahal is suitable for food preparation and applications such as kitchen worktops, bar counters and countertops that require a luxurious yet sturdy stone.
Taj Mahal is a quartzite stone under EU mineral classification, and granite in the US and China. It comes in very large slabs, with dimensions varying across batches. Each batch has its own unique beauty and will vary with every block, which is why it is recommended that you go and view the slabs in person and hand select those that will be used for your project.
