Natural stone countertops are scratch resistant and are far harder to scratch than other countertop options. Having said that, they can still be scratched. Avoid using knives to cut directly on your countertop. Also, diamonds are harder than granite so be careful with your jewelry.
In general, countertops are priced by the square foot. Prices of natural stone can differ for a wide variety of reasons. Typically the more expensive the stone, the more rare it is or difficult to obtain. This is usually measured as the "Level" of the stone. Level one being the most common and least expensive.

Granite countertops are mined from around the world, including quarries in India, Brazil, Norway, Italy and China. Each slab is unique and comes in a variety of natural colors. Granite is hard and durable, scratch and heat resistant, and can be easily cleaned with water and a mild detergent. Granite is the most desirable kitchen countertop material and will improve the value of any home.
Quartz countertops are an engineered stone surface. The primary ingredient is ground quartz which is combined with polyester resins to bind it together. Pigments are added to give it color. Quartz is an attractive look in kitchens. Some designs incorporate small amounts of recycled glass or metallic flecks for a unique look. Quartz is a low maintenance countertop, resistant to staining and the most durable counter surfaces you can purchase.
Granite countertops are most commonly referred to as levels. The level is not a measure of the quality of the granite but the availability. Level 1 granite are colors that are abundant and easily quarried. Because of this, the cost is lower only because the supply is greater and not because of the quality of the stone.Learn More About Granite Grades
