Granite is made up of extremely hard components, such as quartz, feldspar, hornblende, and mica, making it one of the hardest materials found in nature. It is a great choice for countertops because it resists scratching, chipping, and discoloring due to heat, and is available in a wide variety of naturally-occurring colors and patterns. Finishes include polished, honed, leathered, antiqued, flamed, and brushed.

Quartz is a high-end surface material that is popular for kitchen counters, bathroom vanities and showers, window sills, fire places, and more. Because quartz is engineered, almost any color can be incorporated into its surface, and materials such as stone and glass can also be added. While it is not prone to staining or scratching, we suggest using a cutting board to protect its shine and luster.

Calcite is the main component of marble, which makes it a fairly soft material. The veining, clouding, and color that give marble its unique qualities are due to impurities such as silica, iron oxide, and graphite. Because it scratches and chips easier than other stone materials, it is typically favored in kitchen backsplashes, bathrooms, fireplaces, and table tops.
Consisting of talc, chlorite, dolomite, and magnetite, soapstone feels soft to the touch and comes in gentle colors with light veining. Oxidization causes it to change from a light to darker color when cut. Because it is soft, soapstone is prone to scratching.
