It is called Super White or White America. It is a quartzite.

How durable is this quartzite??i am looking at this and the slabs I have seen and tested seem fairly "soft". Not as soft as marble but scratches pretty easily. What about stains? Is it pretty stain resistant?

The client has been very happy with the quartzite. It is slightly softer than granite, but stains have not been an issue.

If you cannot afford quartzite but love the look of it as well as marble, what else comes close to these too options? Thank you, juanita

I loved this look so I decided to do a blk absolute honed granite on the countertops and pearla quartz on the island. My cabinets are sprayed white dove, from Ben Moore and revere pewter I used on the walls. We get lots of light. The island is a walnut stain and floors are similar but scrapped for a more casual rustic look. I happened upon a remnant peice of quartz, or it would've been out of my budget. Was thinking of Carrerra marble 3x6 or 2x4 inch subway tile . The countertops are honed, as mentioned, so I thought a matte backsplash may not look that good. Would polished look better? Secondly, do you think Carrerra marble backsplash will go with pearla Quatz or is it just a bit to dissimilar ? Thank you for any and all suggestions.
