This home was built several years ago so it may not still be available but would have come from Virginia Tile in Grand Rapids

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.

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.

Forevermore- would you mind sharing more photos of your counters -overall view,, some semi close up and close ups of etching? I am between super white and antartide and based on this string (and other reviews of super white) it sounds like super white may be a bit more durable. But if it's not, I'll go with antartide. Also can you put grocery bags/unload groceries on it, kids so himework , spill milk and let it sit a bit? Am trying to think of everyday activities that are most likely our issues. If I spill wine, it's easy to clean up immediately- it's actually pretty rare (could always keep wine on a cutting board when we have guests, or perimeter which will be ceasar stone). I think the red sauce/lemons/coffee easier to control. The risk is what babysitters do, breakfast , unloading groceries etc. Thanks (I can send my email if easier to send pics directly). I need to make a decision next week- and my husband can't take much more of me going back and forth on our slabs on hold :). Will do all white cabinets, overall gray/white/light blue color scheme.

@sagusta; i'm going to jump in here also about the antartide etching problems. Forevermore & I both got our slabs from the same place. i have actually not seen hers in person but i have had mine now for about 2 years. i am the only one who sees the etching, its not the kind of thing that is noticeable unless someone points it out. its a very hard surface, harder than granite. i am very careful to wipe up all water & anything else that is a liquid, also i never put a pizza box on it or anything oily. grocery bags are fine & magazines, i have never seen any ink come off on it. seems to be its more of an etching caused by air, because mine is etching in many areas. very similar to marble etching, dull spots that you can see if you look at from certain angles or you can feel if you wipe your hand across. to some extend i wish i could have mine re-sealed & polished by a professional, even though mine is a high gloss finish, i feel like it could be a thicker finish, if that makes sense. i don't polish mine very frequently myself, which maybe would be a good idea. its still very beautiful stone & no one sees the etching, so its still very shiny & impressive. its to be cleaned with just soap & water, no chemical based cleaners. its such a rare stone that i never have seen it anywhere else to maybe compare. i am still happy with it as my kitchen is white & blue gray & i never saw a white/gray granite that i liked & marble was just too pricey. hope this helps! i could post pics but i don't think you would see the etching in the pics, its very subtle.
