Many buyers see quartzite countertops as a great alternative to marble, because of the many similarities in color and veining patterns. And while marble is not a recommended material for countertop surfaces in high traffic areas, quartzite is a great natural stone substitute. Quartzite comes out as a winner in every measurable aspect versus marble in terms of durability. Quartzite is naturally very hard. therefore, it is scratch resistant. In fact, it is hard enough that we recommend using a cutting board during food preparations to avoid dulling the knife. It is also not prone to etching, which is a damage to the marble countertop sustained from contact with strong, common household acids such as citrus juices, coffee, tea or wine. But it's important to remember that just like marble, quartzite is a porous material which needs to be sealed to minimize staining. Make sure not to confuse quartzite with quartz countertops, which are engineered and non-porous.

White quartzite with grey veining will on average cost around $75 per square foot installed, while White Carrara marble can be purchased for as low as $50 per square foot. The higher price, however, is most often a justified expense for majority of homeowners since it provides an easy to work on and maintain kitchen surface with an unparallel white natural stone look.
