Are my Marble counters really Marble?

We are building a new home and choose Montbello Marble. We would have liked Calacatta/Carrara, but obviously the builder places a huge mark up on upgrades. The counters were installed on the perimeter this week and look very different from other marble I've seen, including the counters in our prior home. Obviously, the veining doesn't look like Carrara, and we weren't expecting it to, but the counters are really reflective with sparkly flecks. My 5 year: "I love our counters! They have glitter in them!" The "glitter" was evident at the Stone yard. Could these be something other than marble?

I really appreciate the input!
