Granite

Granite is one of the hardest materials on earth. Its beauty and elegance make it a most prestigious yet practical countertop. No two slabs of granite are the same so your work surface will be unique.

Marble

Its name comes from the Greek word for “gleaming,” marble is one of the most timeless and stylish stones on earth. Because of its strength and ageless beauty, marble can be used in nearly any indoor or outdoor capacity. Marble is sensitive to acids so it is not recommended for kitchens.

Onyx

Onyx is translucent . . . light transmits through it. It is often backlit to take advantage of this unique property. Onyx is a strikingly dramatic stone that comes in pastel colors and swirling patterns.

Onyx is a calcareous stone, formed by dissolving limestone and redeposited as a new kind of stone. In caves, drip water forms onyx as stalactites and stalagmites. It is a soft, fragile stone and should be carefully evaluated for its intended use. Onyx slabs have a fiberglass mesh material on the back to hold the stone together.

Travertine/Limestone

Found in the earth’s crust, its unique look and qualities are derived from thermal springs of water which are forced up and through it by geologic pressures.

Travertine works very well for backsplashes and bathroom countertops, as well as tub decks or shower interiors. It’s not recommended for kitchen countertops, because it fragile and more poruous. Travertine requires sealing and requires re-sealing occasionally throughout their lifetimes.

Usually found in colors ranging from light cream to dark cocoa browns to yellow golds and light greens, they usually (but not always) tend towards the neutral color zone.

Some travertines and limestones have small fossils visible in the surface, which can add considerable visual appeal. They are available in 2cm, and 3cm thicknesses, and can achieve the same edges as granite or marble.
