RE: Quartz substitute for marble (Follow-Up #13)

I was in your same position not long ago and after eliminating every quartz and granite we looked at, went to the stone yard to pick my marble slabs when I walked into the Super White quartzite... It was love at first sight! In my research, it's the only non-marble stone that actually looks like marble, but without the marble "fuss". Our kitchen was finished about 2 wks ago and I'm still in love with my super white. Everyone thinks is marble, even the stone guys who came to install it. Just wanted to point out that a non-marble "marble" does exist. If you search GW for super white, you'll see lots of discussions on this.
Here's a shot of my island:

Victostone uses Italian Breton machines which is what Silestone,Caesarstone,and Cambria use.

But it is a Vietnamese company started in 2002.

IMO Cambria Torquay looks like the Marble of my dreams,how it should look without all the grey.



If you want marble "patina" or "character" with etching and staining then go for marble.I would rather go for "fake" perfection.
