Quartzite is a hard metamorphic rock that is obtained from sandstone and natural quartz.

Critics say that the amount of radon gas emitted by granite countertops is insignificant and is not capable of causing any health problems or damage. However, the safe level of radon exposure is not yet known to man; neglecting this fact is quite difficult. It is also believed that not every type of granite is harmful, thus, worried homeowners can get their homes tested for radon gas, with do-it-yourself radon test kits to check if they are living in high levels of radon.

Removing it later can even harm the adjoining structures. Their biggest advantage is that they sport a luminous surface and give a very rich look to the kitchen furniture.
