- Guillotined wall rock
Chief Cliff is an exceptionally durable dark grey quartzite. It contains iron oxides (rust and other minerals) which can be seen in streaks and on exposed surfaces, and is characterized by rich earth tones. Quartzite is formed when quartz rich sandstone undergoes extreme heat and pressure (metamorphosis) resulting in a compact rock composed of recrystallized interlocking quartz grains. Chief Cliff thin veneer is available in squares and rectangles, ledge, and random shapes.
Residential or commercial applications: Beautiful stone for exterior chimneys, entranceway columns, interior fireplace surrounds, exterior walls, steps, thin veneers are great for interior walls when accented by wooden staircase features and interior chimney applications.
