Moreover, All three of these types are fairly easy to find. We have done a lot of research on the current build of the game to find the best possible location to get Quartzite from. The player does not need to prepare much.

Quartzite can also be used to repair early-game tools, which already have excellent durability. For more on that, read our Grounded: How To Repair Tools & Structures guide.

As mentioned earlier, there are three types of Quartzite. These are as follows.

  • Brittle Quartzite.
  • Sturdy Quartzite.
  • Supreme Quartzite.

As you can see in the image that we have provided above, Brittle Quartzite is the most common type, and Supreme Quartzite is the most high-level one. Study Quartzite is also hard to find and is very useful for mid-game. 

Best Location For Brittle & Supreme Quartzite

Make your way to the exact spot that we have shown in the image above. When you arrive, look for an area that is blocked off from the rest of the lake. It is covered with a huge leaf. To get a better idea of the spot that you need to reach, take a closer look at the right side of the image. 

Furthermore, once at the spot, simply wait for your stamina to recover, and then jump in the water. Keep swimming deeper and deeper. The area will be very dark, so we advise you to increase the brightness and just keep swimming toward the faint light. 

After swimming for a bit, you will pop out into a cave. It is known as the Clover Cave, and here you can find a lot of upgrade materials alongside the Four-Leaf clover, which is required for a whole other ordeal. 

Moreover, it is very dark inside the cave so pull out a torch. You can instantly spot the Brittle and Supreme Quartzite here, and it is by the corner alongside some Marble. Break it up with a Hammer and collect as much as you can. It is that easy.

Next, let us tell you about a spot where you can find Sturdy Grounded Quartzite and many, many other materials. Be sure to read our guide all the way through.

Take a look at the image above and then make your way to that location on the map. Here you will find one of the many entrances to a cave. This one is the closest to a Sturdy Quantzite, alongside other types as well. So we recommend that you enter here. Be sure to come here with a lot of space in your inventory. 

Getting here isn’t easy, but this is one of the very best caves you can explore. It will get you many things, and that includes all kinds of Quartzite and Marble too. You should visit here whenever you can.

Moreover, It is a very complicated location to transverse, but once you get used to it, it all becomes simple. The case is mostly referred to as the Larva or Ladybird Larva cave. 


And with that, our guide comes to an end. We did a lot of research about Quartzite. It is one of the rarest materials to find in the game and is also essential with how much it is required. We made sure that we provided the very best locations for you to acquire all three types of Quartzite.

Obsidian Entertainment is mainly known for some incredible RPGs. Grounded is the first game where they have tried to make a survival experience. In our opinion, they have done a phenomenal job, and we would love to see them revisit the genre. 

The game also offers a lot when it comes to content after you’re done fixing the mysterious machine. You can unlock some of the best recipes to make some awesome stuff like the best armor and the best Weapons, or you can also explore and find the Oak lab and the Hedge lab. You can also reach the upper yard

Furthermore, both fans and critics are happy with the full release. Grounded is another proof that early access can lead to some of the best and most innovative games in the industry. Grounded is a brand-new survival game developed by Obsidian Entertainment. The game has finally been fully released after being in early access for years.
