At The Granite Place, we carry a huge variety of different Natural Stones in our showroom, each with their own unique qualities and considerations. That could make it difficult to keep track of all your options. To help you pick the perfect countertop material for your kitchen or bath, let’s take a moment to put the spotlight on one of our incredible Natural Stones!
Sea Pearl Quartzite is one of our most popular Natural Stones, with an incredibly unique look and some of the best durability you’ll find in a countertop. Imported directly from the finest Natural Stone quarries in Brazil, this distinguished Quartzite brings a serene, oceanic look to any room.
Style & Colors of Sea Pearl Quartzite
Sea Pearl Quartzite is often boasting a cool, off-white background color, contrasting with swooping gray and charcoal lines. This gives it a slight resemblance to Marble, while retaining the signature “geological” look and high durability of Quartzite.
Called “Sea Pearl” for its color and gently moving veining patterns, this beautiful Stone gives off a high-class, pearlescent look, which will compliment luxurious colors such as bronze and silver. Sea Pearl Quartzite also fits into any beach house or ocean-themed decor.

How Durable is Sea Pearl Quartzite?
Sea Pearl, like most Quartzites, is incredibly durable as a countertop. Even harder than Marble and Granite, Sea Pearl Quartzite is highly resistant to heat, scratching, and staining. While all Natural Stone will require regular cleaning and sealing through the years, Sea Pearl Quartzite will require comparatively less maintenance than other Stones.
While Quartzite is incredibly durable, light-colored Quartzite can sometimes absorb water, and leave small discolorations or “water spots.” Even when it’s properly sealed, Sea Pearl Quartzite still can experience this light water absorption. 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 to avoid this occurrence.

What is the Price Range of Sea Pearl Quartzite?
The value of Quartzite will vary from stone to stone, as every Natural Stone has unique and sometimes rare qualities.

Sea Pearl Quartzite is an Exotic Stone, and comes in unique, limited batches, or “lots.”
Be sure to communicate with your countertop professional for a precise estimate on your material, as every individual block of Natural Stone will have its own particular price and properties.
