I'm considering using this in my kitchen because it's more durable but I'm wondering HOW much more durable is it? Can I put hot things directly from the oven on it? Will water rings stay? Does it have some marble in it? Sorry for the overload of questions!!

THAnks!

Quartzite is actually closer to granite in structure, but it's actually harder and denser. I don't recommend putting hot things on any surface, though you can. water rings, etc. shouldn't be an issue.
it's very durable.

After 8 years of having a quartzite the counter top edges are all chipping. It is a composite product. I suggest marble which my friend has had the same amount of years. I suggest the marble be honed and sealed. Stick with the tried and true.

You are confusing quartz & quartzite. Quartz is a composite of quartz & resin, but quartzite is a natural stone, with even more quartz than granite; therefore it is harder than granite.
