If it is Quartzite i'd sure like to find it. The slabs I've found of the Super White don't look nearly this good.

Those are green glass subway tiles. The kitchen was done by TruKitchens - www.trukitchens.com.

Is all Super White Quartzite Soft and Brittle? - I have loved the photos of Super White Quartzite and everything i have read about quartzite, i.e., the look of marble but the durability of granite. I finally saw some at a stone yard and fell madly in love with it. When I gave the sample to my builder he pulled out his knife and proceeded to scratch it then dropped it on the ground and it broke into pieces!! Obviously, it was super soft and NOT scratch resistant. Has anyone else observed this? I have heard that some quartzites are brittle and unfortunately, it looks like this is one of them.

Well - we try to be pretty careful with our counters, meaning that we don't put anything with rough edges on them or anything that is metal (like even spiral notebooks...the metal will leaves small scratch lines). pretty much everything etches it - if the hand soap drips and we don't see it to wipe it off right when it happens it will etch it, same with pretty much with a majority of food spills. I was using my large crockpot to cook something and had it sitting on the counter while cooking and the heat caused one of the natural fissure lines to crack more -so I wouldn't recommend using hot things like a crock pot on it. Because it is a honed finish the etching doesn't seem to stand out much to others. They look pretty, but I am concerned about the cracking and then not holding up even without us accidentally staining them. The seam where they put the 2 counters pieces together has completely separated and now will have to be refilled. So if I was starting from the beginning I would choose something else that is usable and doesn't create stress in a room that gets so much use. Hope that this helps :)

circusof6- thanks for the info. I would never have thought of the crock pot or hand soap. Very helpful info.

I am having the same situation with my counters from Hellenic. Waiting to hear back from them now. Not feeling all warm and fuzzy though since reading your post Linzz612! Have you had any success since you last posted, in remedying the situation?

I had my Antartide countertop put in from Hellenic..I'm extremely careful with it but there are definitely etch marks..I constantly wipe water droplets from around the sink and keep cutting boards and mats on the counter to prepare food..I never leave a wet glass on there either. I don't have that much etching because I'm diligent but it really is annoying to have to baby the countertop. I banged the corner with a dish and it chipped off so quickly..I was able to file it smooth with a nail file! That's how soft it is..I would have still chosen this countertop even though it is more work..It simply is beautiful to look at even if there are places where there is etching. You have to look from the side to see them. I don't have any staining and I haven't sealed it in two years..I'm not sure if I will or not..I think mine was resined and it doesn't absorb any stains..I spilled a large glass of red wine on the counter..I almost had a heart attack but I cleaned it up without a problem. It also gets scratched pretty easily..
