Is there a granite that looks similar to this marble?

msroseDecember 9, 2012

I found this picture on Houzz and thought it was granite, but someone asked about the countertop material and the response was that it was some type of marble, maybe Crema Marfil. I love the warm color and the soft swirls in it, but I don't want marble. Is there something else that would give me a similar look, but resistant to stains?

The only white granite I've seen that resembles granite is supreme white granite-it does have more gray swirls in it though.

It looks like a granite to me. Maybe Bianco Romano?

How does Bianco Romano do with staining? I originally wanted something with darker swirls in it, but I'm finding myself drawn to the lighter colors lately.

Could it be Madre Perla granite?

Maybe you should look at Cambria Torquay

Applying a good seal to marble will prevent it from staining if that is your only concern. It will still etch however.

Look for white or gray quartzites. Some look like marble.

I forgot about Madre Perla. I do love it in Pip's kitchen. I'm never sure if it's considered a granite or quartzite.
