Identify this quartzite or granite? Macauba?
Hi everyone. Kitchen is installed and I'm down to countertop choice. I've been lurking here for a while, really drooling over the quartzite here on GW. I think I've found a beauty, but the stoneyard is insisting it's a granite slab called White Macauba. I've seen pics of installed White Macauba here on GW and it clearly is not. My google searches lead me to believe its is a quartzite called Gold Macauba or Giallo Macauba. He insists it's not quartzite. What do you guys think? I don't care one way or the other. I just love the stone. I do think it might matter when it comes to sealing. From what I've read here some quartzite etches over time and I would need some recommendations on sealers and how often it should be applied. I love love the flow of quartzite but have been unable to find a suitaable color as my cabinets are warm tones. I think this one fits the bill.
