Kashmir White - quartzite or granite?

Is Kashmir white a quartzite, or a granite? If we go with a granite (still trying to decide), I need a bulletproof stone that's not prone to staining, so have ruled out the gorgeous Super White quartzite I originally fell in love with. Does anyone know where Kashmir White stands?
Thanks so much.

I believe it's granite, and I've heard that it's fussier than most as many "white" granites tend to be. Have you investigated white/light quartz?

I have been looking at the lighter quartz and there are some I really liked. I did hear that some of them are way backlogged, looking at something like April for delivery, and that won't work for me. I need to ask around locally to find out what's the norm with quartz and the waiting period. I'd also be interested in other light or gray granites that would be durable. Thanks!

It's granite, without a doubt.

Suzanne - what have you heard about its fussiness? My Mom just decided on Kashmir White today for her kitchen, so I'd be keen to know if there are issues with it.

thanks!

My Mom just decided on Kashmir White, too :)

I have a friend who's had it for about 3 years. She has 3 young boys and they've had no staining.

Here are a couple of GW threads on it:
