White pearl - This super white available here goes very grey whereas the pearl I've seen here is quite creamy to champagne. Is there an in between option?

Have you looked at Baca Bianaca because this is closer to the pattern of the White Pearl which has more of a speckled pattern than the veiny Super White shown above? You can also look at Kashmire Cream which has a smaller stippled pattern too. Hope this helps.

Sorry. I work exclusively in the coastal SC region. Google granite warehouses in NYC and that may bring up more suggestions OR try granite fabricators.

JP Stone Granite & Marble
This stone is not granite. It is a dolomite. Dolomitic marble is a sibling to regular marble. Regular marble is made of calcite. Dolomite is made of calcite plus magnesium. Calcite is CaCO3 and dolomite is CaMgCO3. So this rock started out as the sedimentary rock called dolomite then was metamorphosed (heat + pressure) to cause the grains to recrystallize into dolomitic marble. It is slightly more resistant to etching than regular calcite marble. But it is still just as soft as marble and has all the other requirements of caring for marble. But no way will it wear like granite or quartzite.

Super White Granite vs. White Princess Granite? - I am looking for a marble alternative and was told to look at Whtie Princess. Is this the same or is this a different color? Does it go by any other names?

Super White is a Dolomite Marble (not quartzite). It will etch, and is not even as close to durable as granite. I think this article would be of interest for anyone being misled to thinking that Super White is very durable: http://www.visionlearning.com/blog/2013/12/12/geology-kitchen-mystery-super-white.

The Sky is the Limit Design
I know this is very dishardening and especially after a lengthy renovation nerves are pretty blank. You and I know that once this has been sorted out it will make one of those great stories about the pitfalls of renovations at social gatherings - after all, those design TV shows are full of them, but until then there is nothing else but trying to resolve this issue.

The first step is to bring up this issue with your supplier. Did you pay the final bill already, or do you have it on a creditcard - then stop the payment immediately!

Consider the worst case scenario - having the counters removed and replaced with a suitable product. Don't let anyone install your backsplash tile if you have one until you have resolved the counters.
You will have to consider approaching the Better Business Bureau - if you used a reputable company they will want to resolve this issue as best as they can. if they are not, then you might have to bite the bullet and incur additional cost for the replacement with another company, and go to Small Claims Court.
If you have something like a Home Builders Association in your town, give them a call and ask for advise.

|What you are encountering is the reality in construction, and some mistakes are honest mistakes ( although a stone supplier should know what it is they are selling...), and hopefully you are dealing with decent people who are eager to resolve this.
