Would like the name and product that looks the closests to Carrara marble. - Would like to use Carrara marble on my counter tops but am afraid because it stains. Could I use Carrara marble tiles for back splash and what for counters?

There are granites that have the look of Carrara marble. That way you get the hard durability of granite (which won't stain) and the timeless look of marble.

Have you heard of quartzite? Quartzite is a natural stone quarried like marble and granite. It tends to look like marble, but is actually harder than granite. Two popular quartzites are Super White Quartzite (aka White Fantasy Quartzite) Super White Quartzite
Super White Quartzite Kitchen in Calvert County, MD

and White Macaubas Quartzite: White Macaubas Quartzite

Hi Rebekah, I love the look of various Carrara marbles for a kitchen worktop, and I can see you've used them to beautiful effect. Do you therefore disagree with those who advise not to use marble as a kitchen counter/worktop (even honed marble)? I'd really appreciate your advice! Many thanks.

I love Carrara marble but don't want to use it for the counters because it stains and my family will spot it with coffee or anything else. Is there something available that looks the closests to Carrara marble?

Have a look at 'Compac Carrara' a composite quartz which is not porous but looks like a natural stone
