Stylish, sophisticated, and in high demand, Perla Venata Quartzite is one of the most fashionable Natural Stones found in modern homes. Perla Venata Quartzite is often the centerpiece of upscale kitchens and commonly encountered in hotels and restaurants due to its exquisite natural beauty and high level of durability.

At The Granite Place, we carry a huge variety of different Natural Stones in our showroom, each with their own unique qualities and considerations. It can get pretty overwhelming when trying to decide which stone is best for your kitchen or bath  To help you choose that perfect countertop material, let’s take a moment to put the spotlight on one of our most popular Natural Stones: Perla Venata Quartzite!

Style and Colors of Perla Venata Quartzite

Perla Venata has a complex sandy brown background, often with gentle ripples of deep brown and gold throughout the entire stone. These ripples move in a remarkably uniform pattern, which is great for stylish additions like a waterfall edge, backsplash, or a symmetrical book-match design. Perla Venata Quartzite is known for its tranquil appearance and ability to compliment brass, bronze, and gold fixtures, as well as complimenting the many shades of white paint on cabinets or walls.

How Durable is Perla Venata Quartzite?

A long-lasting and easy-to-clean Natural Stone, Perla Venata Quartzite is incredibly resistant to scratches and heat.  While Quartzite is incredibly durable, light-colored Quartzite like Perla Venata can sometimes absorb water, and leave small discolorations or “water spots.” Even when it’s properly sealed, Perla Venata Quartzite still can experience this light water absorption. It is advised to seal your Perla Venata Quartzite countertop thoroughly when it is first installed, as well as re-sealing every 2 to 4 years, or until water spots begin to appear more frequently. The discoloration from moisture should naturally fade away over the course of a week or so as the stone dries, although it is recommended to clean all spills (including water) as soon as possible, as well as regular use of preventative measures such as coasters and cutting boards to avoid this occurrence.
