Granite

Granite is one of the most in demand countertops in cosmopolitan kitchen design. Sometimes people think granite is just a blue stone but in fact it has many different colors and patterns. Granite is made of large mineral grains that fit tightly together, which is where its name came from. Granite always consists of the minerals quartz and feldspar with or without a wide variety of other minerals (accessory minerals). The quartz and feldspar generally give granite a light color, ranging from pinkish to white. But that light background color is punctuated by the darker accessory minerals. Thus classic granite has a “salt-and-pepper” look. Granite is a strong stone since its mineral grains have grown tightly together during a very slow cooling period thus making it perfect for adding life and elegance to your kitchen while the price is significantly lower than marble. Granite isn’t just mined out of the ground and shipped to your home. First it is quarried then tested for strength and durability standards.

What is Silestone?

Silestone is a combination of natural quartz and other raw materials that are extraordinarily hard and resilient. These characteristics combine to create an ideal surface for kitchen countertops, bathrooms, flooring and wall siding.

What is Caesarstone?
 Caesarstone evolved a new kind of work surface by adding quartz to the Bretonstone process. The manufacture of slabs from a mixture of ground quartz aggregates, pigments and polymers proved to be the unique components necessary for this new generation of surfacing. As a result of this advanced technology, Caesarstone is able to provide improved products with unprecedented physical properties superior to those of marble, granite and other manufactured surfaces. For more than a decade Caesarstone has set new standards in innovation and craftsmanship and continues to set the trends in the industry.
