Slab Sunday: Fusion quartzite

Fusion quartzite is a fairly new stone in the US market.  It is quarried in Brazil.

Fusion changes DRAMATICALLY from bundle to bundle.  Some slabs are quite deep in color and have a lot of the rusts.  Other slabs are actually pretty light colored and have less pattern.  One isn't better than the other, it just depends on what you are looking for.  This is a stone that you must select your exact slabs before purchasing.

Fusion is obviously a very dramatic stone and will be the focal point of any area you use it in.  It looks beautiful on walls like a piece of art.

Fusion slabs are bookmatched as you can see in the stunning picture below.

Fusion is available in 2 cm and 3 cm slabs.

Does fusion quartzite have to be sealed with anything, like granite does? How should it be maintained?

Does fusion quartzite have to be regularly sealed like granite? Are there any special cleaning techniques to use?

Quartzites are a little tricky when it comes to sealer. Most are so hard that they won't absorb the sealer. Other colors NEED sealer or they'll stain fairly easy.
Every color is totally different.
I recommend getting a sample of the Fusion and sealing it before it's installed to see if it will accept the sealer.
