Remodeling my kitchen and I haven't been able to find what I like in granite or in quartz (which I am not a fan of).

Quartz and granite have similar properties and maintenance requirements.

Quartzite is gorgeous and a natural product.

Quartzite is beautiful and tough, but pretty expensive. I chose it for my island. I also couldn't find what I liked in quartz or granite.

Granite can be come dis-colored or "etch" with certain acidic liquids like lemon and lime juice. It also emits small quantities of radon gas.
