Daltile’s Newest Natural Quartzite Slabs Exemplify Superiority of Brazilian Stone

As part of its Summer 2022 launch, Daltile is now offering two new natural quartzite extra-large slab products. Daltile’s new Caldera Blue and White Pearl are mined in Brazil, the ultimate source of the world’s finest natural quartzites.

Benefits of Natural Quartzite
“In the stone category, natural quartzite remains one of stone’s hottest offerings,” said Roy Viana, director of natural stone and slab for Dal-Tile LLC. “Natural quartzites feature the luxurious look and feel of marble, with all of the benefits of greater durability and hardness. When you talk about countertops, natural quartzite continues to be the fastest-growing category in natural stone for countertops. For those seeking softer looks with more natural movements, natural quartzite is a good fit.”

Superiority of Brazilian Quartzites
“Brazil is famous for the quartzite it mines and sends around the world,” said Viana. “Daltile puts a tremendous amount of research and expertise into selecting the very finest stone slabs Brazil has to offer.

“Blue and grey offerings in stone are trending steadily within the design community and among end-consumers,” said Viana. “Daltile’s Caldera Blue nicely meets this need with soft shades of blue and grey as the stone’s background, highlighted by white crystal and rusty veins that add uniqueness and majesty to this high-variation design.”

Caldera Blue is available with a polished finish in ¾” and 1 ¼” thicknesses. This extra-large quartzite slab is suitable for use on countertops or walls.

“White Pearl features an off-white background with taupe highlights, making this quartzite a material that works well with many cabinet and floor colors,” said Viana. “The design of this natural stone includes white vein characteristics that can run vertically and horizontally, achieving a unique medium variation pattern throughout.”

White Pearl is available in both polished and leather finishes, in ¾” and 1 ¼” thicknesses. This extra-large quartzite slab is suitable for use on countertops or on walls.
