Caribbean White Altair Stone is a extremely hard Quartzite. A compact, fine grained, weather-resistance Stone. The parent rock for quartzite is quartz-rich sandstone. As sandstone becomes deeply buried, tectonic compression and rising temperature will fuse the quartz grains together forming quartzite. Like marble, quartzite comes in many colors, but when pure it is light-colored. Caribbean White Altair Stone is soft off-white with Altair sparkles and occasional gold overtones. (Altair refers to bright star often used in celestial navigation.)
Caribbean White Altair Stone will be cool to the touch on those hot summer days, has a natural non-skid surface and is highly resistant to chemical weathering making it a great choice for pool decks and walkways.
Caribbean White Altair Stone comes in 3/8″ – 3/4″ and 3/4″ – 1 1/4″ thicknesses. Commonly these are flat smooth sheets in random shapes with a minimum piece size of 1 sq. ft.
