I may have found my quartzite...anyone have Antarctica?
Having given up on finding a white granite that works with white cabinets, I have moved on to quartzites, which are unfortunately way more expensive.
I would love to get White Macaubas (luce de luna), but can't swing it financially. Looked at White Arabesque, which is beautiful, but closer to marble. Other quartzites like White Pearl, Symphony, and Taj Mahal are even more expensive.
I saw something called Antarctica (or Antartide) which seems perfect. Not too pricey, maybe harder than some of the marble-like quartzites. I still need to do the glass test on it since none of the showrooms will give me a sample. Anyone have Antarctica quartzite installed? I haven't been able to find much info about it so I don't know how it holds up in a working kitchen. Would love to hear from others who have it.
Meanwhile, here's a pic of the slab I chose. My daughter assigned herself the job of rating the slabs we looked at. As you can see, she takes her job very seriously and came prepared.
