White Macaubas Quartzite in NW DC

White Macaubas Quartzite is a naturally occurring (aka not man made at all) stone that closely resembles marble but has the durability of granite. These young parents in Northwest Washington, D.C. wanted the modern look of marble, but also needed something more durable. The full backsplash is bookmatched, and the edge profile is a three-quarter inch bevel.

seaming with the quartzite - Considering the linear veining, can a 90 degree seam be made without butting horizontal and vertical veins?? Thank you

Great question. Matching up the pattern on the stone is called "book matching" and a good fabricator should always do this! For this project, we cut the full backpslash directly above the countertops on the slab so that the veins transitioned from countertop to backplash in the kitchen.

Hi, thanks for the question. No, water stains are not typical with any granite or quartzite IF it is sealed properly. It sounds like this person either did not seal their stone or used the wrong kind of product. We recommend sealing your stone once or twice a year with a 100% silicone sealer. It is very easy. You wipe it on, wait ten minutes, and then wipe it off. The great thing about natural stone is that if, for some rare reason it stains, it is very easy to remedy. The first step I would take to remove the water stains is to get a product called TSP from a local hardware store. This will remove the mineral deposits that have “stained” your stone. Then, I would reseal. White Macuabas is a BEAUTIFUL stone. We have worked with it dozens of times and have never gotten a phone call about stains, scratches, or etches. Good luck on your stone decision and happy decorating!
