Granite

Granite

Despite the technological innovations in alternative materials, natural granite retains its stature as the leading choice in premium, custom countertops. A crystalline, igneous rock quarried from mountains around the world, granite has been a premium building material since the beginning of time. Its naturally varied appearance and character (vein patterns, color variations, etc.) creates a one-of-a-kind uniqueness and sheer beauty that no man-made material can match.

Marble

Marble

Marble is a metamorphic rock, formed when limestone is subjected to extremely high pressures and temperatures within the earth's crust. These forces change the texture and composition of limestone to create large grains of calcite, a process called recrystallization. In its natural form, marble is completely white.

Soapstone

Soapstone

Soapstone is a siliceous natural stone, consisting mainly of talc and chlorite. As talc in soapstone is soft to the touch, its feel is smooth and silky, warm and inviting. It's a soft stone, softer than other natural stones, and you wouldn't want to cut on it. Soapstone is charming, rustic, and rich looking, yet versatile enough to fit comfortably within a modern home.
