Is this marble or engineered stone?

This is certainly natural stone, marble to be exact. It may be carrera, statuary white or calcutta. I am attaching a photo of white carrera in a similar style kitchen. There is an engineered stone by the name Misty Carrery by Caesarstone, however, it is 100" consistent without any "movement" or pattern.

This looks like Calacata Gold marble. See the following slabs we have so you can see the difference in them. The first is Statuarietto, the second is White Carrara Extra, and the last is our latest shipment of Calacata Gold

How sturdy is this to use in a heavily utilized kitchen? We are always in the kitchen and I love to cook. I've heard marble is better suited for bathrooms.

You are correct in what you heard. Marble is a porous stone and even sealed only gives you a few more seconds/minutes to wipe up a potentially dangerous spill: i.e. oil, vinegar, wine. If you are a conscientious cook then you should be OK, but if you tend to be more lax I'd avoid marble and use granite instead. You see it ALL the time in pictures and it looks gorgeous but you can see my hesitation to recommend it for kitchen use. consider this instead as well: Super White granite. It's very similar but not a marble.

that all depends on your fabricator...we charge $30/lineal foot for any upgraded edges (doesn't matter which one) but have five standards included in all our pricing
