What Houzz contributors are saying:
6. Lava stone. Impervious to heat, stains and cold and virtually maintenance free, lava stone might be the Holy Grail of countertops. But as prices start at $225 a foot and there’s a waiting list to boot, there’s a reason why you don’t see this material more often.
The counters shown here are glazed stone. Glazed basalt to be precise. they are made from a company in France called Pyrolave, and the color palette they have available is truly unlimited. These counters are about as good as it gets, and they are priced accordingly.Pyrolave counters have all the strength of granite without any of the sealing worries yet they have the appearance of glazed pottery.
