Reference Answer

Fantasy Brown is definitely not a granite. It is not a hard quartzite either. Fantasy Brown is marble, but there is more to it. Fantasy Brown is harder than regular marble because it went through the dolomitization process. In my opinion, it is best to call it a “hard marble” to keep the language simple. It would also be correct to call it a “dolomite” or a “dolomitic marble.”

It is also common that Fantasy Brown is categorized as “soft quartzite” In reality, there is no such thing as thing as “soft quartzite” or “hard quartzite.” Quartzite is quartzite, and it is always hard.

Some slab yards came up with soft quartzite terminology to emphasize that Brown Fantasy is harder than your standard marble, such as White Carrara Marble, Crema Marfil Marble, Calacatta Gold Marble. They also wanted to convey the message that it is not as hard as true quartzite, so they named it “fantasy brown soft quartzite” There are more examples of this. “Super White Soft Quartzite” (actually super white hard marble/dolomite) or “Shadow Storm Soft Quartzite” (actually Shadow Storm Hard Marble/Dolomite)

Some Brown Fantasy Slabs have harder parts of the stone which is more like hard quartzite. For this reason, there are also some industry experts that call Brown Fantasy a “combo stone”

We name “Fantasy Brown Granite” because we saw that 64 google searches were done for “fantasy brown granite,” only 18 of the Google searches were done for “fantasy brown marble.” Only 17 of the google searches are done for “fantasy brown dolomite.” Google did not show any searches for “fantasy brown dolomite” due to low search volume. We wanted to make sure that our article reaches the majority of the people looking to get information about Fantasy Brown. This misconception was one of the reasons that we decided to write this blog.
