In remodeling a recent home we did the person didn't want standard grantie countertops.

They referenced that NT Times article from 2008 ( I think that's when it was published) that talked about high levels of radiation coming from standard granite.

I recommended a glass and stone composite. Does anyone else have a suggestion for green countertops, while trying to keep with the stone facade? Marble is an option, but it just seems to pricey for some.

High Levels of radiation is a joke. There are studies on both sides of the bridge. But most of them show the radiation seepage from granite to be less than the radiation given off from a smoke detector.
