please list all marble look countertops

enright

I AM SO CONFUSED! I love the look of marble and did the stain test on a piece of sealed honed marble and thought it would work. But then I dropped a scissors on it and it chipped right away. Not good, since we are always dropping stuff on the counters. Now I am in search of marble look-alikes. Here is what I have found:

1. Okite bianco carrera-- very WHITE, but the veining is not very authentic looking

2. Ceasarstone Misty Carrera-Looks grayer in pictures I have seen on kitchen forum

3. Luce de luna-- a quartzite but I don't know anything more. I have only seen this on the kitchen forum. Appears to look most like marble but I have not seen it in person.

4. Danby marble-- This is actually a marble but it is supposed to be harder than most marble. When I talked to someone from a quarry in Virginia, he said it would probably chip if a scissor is dropped on it.

Does anyone know any more about the Luce de luna or Danby? Any others that I am missing?? Any pics available??
