Gorgeous natural stone countertops, at a price you'll love
Granite has been one of the world’s most popular building materials since the days of ancient Egypt and Rome; it’s been used to form buildings, monuments, and even bridges. It’s become a popular countertop material for the same reasons: granite is incredibly durable, scratch-resistant, and beautiful.

Composition and Origin: Granite is a type of natural stone called igneous rock, which is formed when molten lava (magma) solidifies. It’s prevalent across the world and mined in many countries, including Brazil, China, and India. In the US, the granite we quarry for countertops comes mostly from five states — Idaho, Massachusetts, South Dakota, Georgia, and New Hampshire.
Appearance: Granite is coarse-grained: the minerals in its makeup are visible to the naked eye. Granite also gets its color range from minerals; common colors include reds, browns, black, and white.
Pros: Granite is exceptionally tough and durable, heat- and scratch-resistant. Most granite is polished to a beautiful shine, but there are other finishes as well. Granite countertops are also relatively easy to clean and can increase your home’s value.
Cons: Granite countertops require periodic re-sealing over time. This is a very simple, low cost process that is done by the homeowner.
Composition and Origin: Quartz is an engineered stone that is created by combining ground quartz mineral with a binding material, such as resin. Pigment can also be added. The result is a very solid surface that can be made to closely resemble granite and marble.
Appearance: Quartz colors and patterns vary depending on either how coarsely or finely the minerals are ground. It can appear flecked, like salt-and-pepper, or very smooth.
Pros: Quartz is a glossy, durable, stain- and crack-resistant material that doesn’t require sealing or resealing. It’s also easy to clean with soap-and-water, and comes in a huge variety of patterns and colors.
Cons: Quartz is also less heat-resistant than granite, however just use a hot pad or trivet to prevent any damage.
Composition and Origin: Marble is a natural stone most commonly sourced from Italy and Spain. Carrara Marble — found in Carrara, Italy — is perhaps the most popular pattern. It was the stone Michelangelo used to sculpt his Statue of David.
Appearance: Marble has long been prized for its exceptional beauty, and is a sign of true luxury. It is found in a variety of veins and patterns, with colors ranging from true white to gray, tans, and even reds.
Pros: Marble is considered one of the most beautiful types of stones throughout the world.
Cons: Marble is a little higher maintenance than granite or quartz. It’s not nearly as stain- or scratch-resistant and stains of any kind (including from water) must be cleaned immediately to protect from permanent set-in. Certain cleaning supplies must be avoided, and abrasive materials like dirt and sand can permanently damage it.
Composition and Origin: Quartzite is primarily composed of silica. Most commonly quarried in Brazil, it combines a marble-like appearance with granite-like durability.
Appearance: Quartzite appearance ranges depending on its mineral makeup. The most common colors are white and grey, but it can also be found with yellow, orange, pink, and red.
Pros: Quartzite is a very hard natural stone and, similar to granite and, is water-, heat-, and scratch-resistant. It also closely resembles marble.
Cons: Just like granite, quartzite requires periodic re-sealing over time. It may also be slightly chemically-reactive, depending on its mineral content, though not very common.
