Dolomite Countertop material, anyone heard of or used it?
Other than the dolomites in Italy and the show on netflix, i've never heard of this as a coutnertop. And surprisingly i can't find any posts on TD H&G about this topic.

Seems like this material is more durable that marble, similar to granite.

Anyone have experience with it?

It's a kind of rock, like marble or granite. (I remember that much from good ol' LSU geology classes in Howe Russell.) I have no idea if it's any good for countertops or not.

I have it. It’s a Little bit harder than marble, not as hard as granite.

Treat it as if it were marble and expect the same characteristics as marble.

We went with it because it was much whiter than the Carrera that is available these days.

What he said. We got it since the “Super White” is much more attractive than the similar granite colors available.

It’s really fantastic looking. Durability is okay. It’s definitely a little softer than granite. Local (BR Area) prices for dealing with it were astronomical. Ended up using StoneWorks out of MS, with slabs picked/installed in BR.

I don’t have a price yet, wife saw it at a local place. Budgeted for quartzite. Is it more or less than that?

I think our slab and install was around $3800.

Mine was $58/sqft.

Local quotes were anywhere from $75-100+/sqft.
