Danby marble (w/ Stoneguard Satin) vs White quartzite Kitchen Counters

Hi all - we are building a new home with a large island (10' x 6'), which will be the heart of the home. Like many others I have long had the dilemma looking for the perfect white-gray natural stone that is durable. Unrealistic expectations, I know. In our last home we settled for a black, white, gray granite that was meh, and Silestone Lyra in the bathroom that always looked like plastic to me and started to yellow after about 2 years.

Fast forward to this house. We have kids, love to cook. I know this can be a difficult search so want to start right away. Anyone have input on pros/cons of these two options - particularly interested in those that have experience with Stoneguard now that it's been out for a couple years). I don't need the counters to be perfect forever but want to make wisest decision.

Planning white shaker style cabinets, black hardware, white oak natural flooring - so the counters & TBD backsplash will be the star of the show.

Thank you!
