Taj Mahal quartzite is the most highly sought natural stone in the world.
There are some slabs of granite, marble, and quartzite that are beyond compare. They’re like pieces of art, moving the soul and connecting with us on a deeper level. Maybe that’s taking it too far. Maybe some stones are just extraordinarily beautiful, and a majority of people recognize that. Taj Mahal quartzite is one of those stones that homeowners and contractors flock to, for many reasons.
So let’s get into that. What makes Taj Mahal quartzite so grand?
Does the name say it all?
Taj Mahal quartzite is so aptly named after the magnificent Taj Mahal in India, which is made entirely of marble and encrusted with jewels.
When we say encrusted with jewels, we mean it. It’s said that 1,000 elephants were used to transport materials from all over India and Asia including jasper from Punjab, crystal and jade from China, turquoise from Tibet, Lapis lazuli from Afghanistan, sapphire from Sri Lankam and carnelian from Arabia. More than twenty eight types of precious and semi- precious stones were inlaid into gorgeous white marble brought in from Rajasthan.
It is considered one of the most beautiful buildings in the world and has even been designated as a UNESCO world heritage site for being “the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world’s heritage”.
With that kind of notoriety, Taj Mahal quartzite really has to live up to it’s name, and it does. After all, it’s the most popularly sought after natural stone by homeowners and contractors for a reason.
If you get a closer look at Taj Mahal quartzite, you will see pearlescent swirls of silvery grey and subtle lines of sandy beige rippling across the slab-like waves washing over a shoreline. The overall tone of the slab is an opaque white, almost translucent, like frosted glass or a frozen lake. The ripples in the slab create the look of movement within the stone, but because the colors are subtle, that movement is not overwhelming.
Because of the semi-translucence and the subtle veins of grey and beige, this stone looks best on white or grey bases, as well as light colored wood. Work with the colors in the slab, even those subtle hints. A grey cabinet will accentuate the grey veins within the countertops. A wood cabinet with a light stain will help to bring out those sandy colors in the slab.
Taj Mahal is the perfect stone if you are renovating your kitchen or bathroom with opulence, or a chic design in mind. Something that lives up to its name- Taj Mahal quartzite.
