Metaquartzite is a type of metamorphic rock that is primarily composed of quartz, with minor amounts of feldspar and mica minerals. It has a granular texture and a light colour, and often contains evidence of deformation and metamorphism resulting from the intense pressure and heat that the rock experienced during metamorphism. Metaquartzite forms as a result of the metamorphism of quartz-rich sandstone or chert.

Metaquartzite has a variety of uses, including as a decorative stone, in the production of certain types of ceramics, and as a source of silica for industrial purposes.
