Saw it on a few slabs in the warehouse. I wouldn't want to use it in my kitchen.

Our Aqua Grantique has a brushed/honed finish (leathered finish). We really like it. The texture adds dimension and interest to the stone. You don't want to write a letter on the counter but it is not a problem to wipe up or keep clean. We continue to be very happy with our decision.

Great article Brunner!

Quartz countertops have also become very famous among homeowners who are looking for a change in their kitchens or bathrooms. Quartz Countertops is an engineered stone countertop, made from the strongest natural mineral found on earth. Quartz countertops are man-made even though quartz is a natural Materia. Quartz countertops are one of the most durable options for kitchens and bathrooms. Quartz comes in a wide range of colors, including fire-engine red and apple green, as well as earthy browns, blacks, and creams. They are the low-maintenance option and perfect for any kitchen. It is formed by combining approximately 90% ground quartz with 8-10% pigment, polymers and resins.
