Love the color of this countertop
I don’t do a ton a reviews, but when finding the right color of quartz became a headache I felt inclined. We originally chose Bianca. After seeing more photos -and reviews online, Calcatta Gold was more subtle and simple with veining. The quartz has light gray and gold veining throughout and just beautiful! If you want something light, simple and timeless- this is your choice! We purchased ours on sale and had an amazing install experience!

    Review of the Calacatta Gold sample only
    I was satisfied with this sample of Calacatta Gold quartz. The 4”x8” size was accurate, and is a good sized sample compared to the 4” samples I have received of other countertops (although the price is higher, too). It is a thin sample though, only 1/8” thick. It would have been nice to have a thicker sample to get a better feel for the the countertop, but I was able to see the color and overall look, which is what I needed. My sample had a good portion of the wide veining and looked accurate compared to what I have seen on several fully installed Calacatta Gold kitchen countertops. I would say the veining on my sample is a subdued gray, without any gold. My photos show the sample, and the sample next to a small cardboard sample received free at the store. The actual sample has gray veining and the the cardboard sample had more of a gold vein.

      Beautiful
      Very pleased with install and the countertops. I was worried about how they would look after reading reviews, but they are stunning. Installers took their time to get the slabs on right and cleaned up during and after.

        Terrible installation experience
        Home Depot needs to have higher quality installers to partner with. The counter installers damaged the wall on both sides of my vanity, dropped the vanity and cracked my floor and has refused to reimburse me for the damage. After contacting Stone Systems over seven times, they refuse to reimburse me for the damage they inflicted on my new bathroom. Overall, I had a terrible experience.

          So wanted to like but . . .
          When our Calacatta was installed, first thing I noticed is it is much more muted in color than samples or photos. Be aware it's going to look subtle in its veins. The other thing was it had a divot on delivery day that had to be polished out. Yesterday, I found 3 scratches on it, and we've only had it a month! We tried to figure out what would have made the scratches and can only think of a cutting board sliding across or maybe a plate with something underneath it. I THOUGHT QUARTZ AND SILESTONE WASN'T SUPPOSED TO SCRATCH! I am quite disappointed with this product, and I so wanted to enjoy our first countertop upgrade in a long time. What would Silestone say to me about the scratches? Photo not so good--flash makes it hard to see, but one scratch is to the right of my finger.

            Love my countertops!
            Our countertops are a center piece in our living area and we couldn’t be happier with this. So sleek and classic!

              There is a one-star review on here that talks about the quality of the countertop sample. I don't disagree that $20 is a lot for a small sample, but this is a sample so there will be differences from the actual product. I am one who had this countertop installed and it is gorgeous. It is about 1.25 inches thick, which is thicker than the sample. We were very impressed

                This rating if for the SAMPLE of Calacatta Gold. The sample is not an accurate representation of the real quartz. In fact it doesn't look or feel like quartz at all. The sample does not reflect the accurate colors of the real quartz either. The real Silestone Calacatta quartz is gorgeous!

                so disappointed with the product that was delivered. it was a thin little piece that resembled plastic and not an actual piece of quartz like the product samples I received from Cambria. you need to provide an actual piece of the quartz slab.

                Not Calacatta Gold
                This is not like Calacatta Gold. What distinguishes real Calacatta Gold marble from other Calacatta marbles and even many other marbles in general is that it has both grey veining AND gold/beige-toned veining. This is only done with grey veining, which is pretty much just traditional Calacatta--or even similar to Carrara, since I find the background not as white as it could be.

                  It was a small piece for $20 but it met my needs to coordinate it with other parts of the kitchen. It helped that I was able to see it on display on one of the kitchens in the store or I am not sure it would have been adequate.

                  Good sized sample. I'm putting this piece through a lot to determine if it's right for my countertop. So far, no scratches or scrapes. I've tried to stain it with avocado, mustard, catsup, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, pasta sauce and red wine. No stain yet, Looking good

                  Trust me, buy granite instead
                  I bought this because of sellers raving about how it’s better than granite. It’s “durable and strong like granite without being porous”, they said. I had this quartz installed over a year ago and wish I would’ve had granite installed. This quartz is beautiful don’t get me wrong but after spending thousands of dollars more than granite and reading up on do’s/dont’s, it’s basically like Formica in the sense you can’t put anything hot directly on it and you can’t chop on it because believe me it DOES scratch and easily. You should check out what is NOT covered under Silestone warranty. This calacatta gold again is beautiful but is so white (which is why I loved it) stains very easily especially with aluminum and natural foods with a lot of color. I’m meticulous in cleaning and maintaining my countertops. If I weren’t so diligent, there is no telling what it would look like. My dissatisfaction with this quartz boils down to being too much work when granite (which I’ve had before) is so much easier to maintain. I hope this helps! I know my review is wordy but I wish I would’ve done more research and had read reviews like mine before spending so much money on something so expensive.

                    The reviews pertaining to the sample are very unfair. If you don't want to pay $20 for the sample then don't but also do not give this beautiful quartz countertop a bad review. I almost did not purchase it based on the average being 3 or so stars. So unfair!

                      Came quickly and I was able to see more of the veining in the calalcatta gold in oder to make my final decision on the silestone counter tops. It also enabled me to put it with all my other colors for floor/cabinets/backsplash..etc to get my final color palette and textures. Thank you
