is a hard stone that is usually white, black, pink, or gray. While most stones have speckles of colors, some have long, elegant veins. Granite countertops with veining and rare colors are more costly. Van Gogh granite is the most costly, and blue shades are expensive too. This natural material is durable and easy to clean.


Marble is a stunning and elegant stone that is softer than granite and quartz. Marble countertops, available in a matte or glossy sheen, work well with many design styles. Options range from less expensive Carrara marble to luxurious Calacatta marble. With proper care, marble is a durable countertop material.


Quartzite is a very strong and durable natural stone that resists scratching, heat, staining, and breakage. A green, red, blue, or purple quartzite countertop adds a splash of color to a kitchen. White, pink, grey, black, and beige counters offer a subdued and sophisticated look. Some patterns and designs imitate marble and granite.


Quartz, one of the hardest minerals on earth, mimics the look of stone. It's available in vibrant colors along with patterns that look like marble and granite. Colors include fire engine red, bright orange, and apple green. While stone slabs are mined, quartz slabs are engineered in a factory. Counters are nonporous and stain and scratch-resistant.
