Granite is a natural stone and the most popular igneous rock. It comes directly from stone quarries and is then cut into thin slabs, polished, and fabricated into countertops. It's highly durable and resistant to heat. To prevent staining easily, granite tops must be sealed.
Quartz countertops are man-made engineering stone countertops They are created by combining natural quartz and minerals with chemical resins and pigments. it is an extremely hard material that does not require sealing and is nonporous.
Quartzite is a metamorphic rock that forms when sandstone rich in quartz gets subjected to a process known as metamorphism.
Quartzite is a very hard substance, which makes it resistant to scratches. Quartzite is porous and it must be sealed.
Marble is a natural stone that is metamorphic or sedimentary. It is also relatively soft and porous, Marble is highly absorbent and must be sealed.
