lost on countertops, granite vs quartz

4 years ago
We recently renovated our very dated 70’s kitchen with white shaker cabinets from IKEA. I wanted a quartz with veining but had seen one granite that grew on me and was a great price point. Now three months after our first quote the sq ft price went from $50 to $87. Is that normal? I can’t see why when we were quoted quartz cheaper than that.

There are several different quartz I like (Spectrum Sophistication, Caesarstone Noble Gray and helix, LG Rococo, LG minuet, and hanstone Italian waves). I started to delve into if one brand was better over the other, did my research and had gotten discouraged by some of the comments on here. I had seen a lot of people suggesting against Chinese made quartz and to use one that uses Breton Technology. All of the above except for Spectrum use Breton. However, Spectrum is NSF certified. I need help choosing what color would look best against my white shaker. I want timeless, clean, calming and something that lasts.
