Marble Vs. Quartzite | Sciencing
Apr 25, 2017· Formation. Quartzite comes from quartz sandstone when the quartz grains of the sandstone are fused due to pressure and heat. Both quartzite and marble tend to form via regional metamorphism (more pressure than heat) and contact metamorphism (more heat than pressure). Also a shared feature is their tendency to form more often from regional metamorphism.
