Advice on disappointment in countertop installed by contractor and designer

“I had my kitchen completely redone by a contractor and designer. They chose all elements based on my expressed design style. My one request made over and over, including in writing in an email, was that the countertop material be low maintenance. Instead, I have a top that etches no matter what I do. 18 months after installation I have big and small water spots, glass and bottle rings, etc. I think it looks awful. It is apparently an expensive natural quartz countertop. I am told it will cost me $5,000 to replace with a different material with a similar look.

Any thoughts on what I should do? Options other than full replacement? Any way to cover etched spots? I am very sad every time I look at it.”
