Super White is gaining in popularity because it provides the elegant and classic look of Marble but it is a more durable and easy to maintain natural stone. Super White  is also known  as Calacatta Quartzite .

Although a lot of people love the look of Super White, they aren’t quite sure what kind of a stone it is.

Some call it a Quartzite or a dolomite. Maybe because of the fact that “it looks like marble but wears like granite” it often falls into one of these two stone categories. The truth is – Super White is neither.

  • It is metamorphic just like marble but is much harder than marble.

Super White  is a light colored stone – a compact, coarse metamorphic rock. It possesses small to intense veins in light, medium, or dark colors. Shades may vary from white to really light tones of beige or gray. In its purest form, Super White Quartzite is as white as marble. However, the impurities give this stone some amazing patterns and swirls.

How to Maintain a Super White Quartzite Countertop

Quartzite is a metamorphic rock that has been formed from sandstone making it a very hard rock that is not water or acid soluble. Quartzite’s hardness protects it from scratching and etching but it should be sealed twice a year to help it resist stains. For regular cleaning wipe with a damp cloth and use mild soaps or stone cleaners.
