This unique countertop can be the crown jewel of a custom kitchen. Filled with semi-precious stones, this engineered quartz product is scratch and stain resistant and cleans up with the swipe of a damp cloth.

Recommended uses are kitchen work areas, bathroom vanities and even inlay for furniture designs. Choose from eight styles: Sfuamto, Intaglio, Puro, Rosado, Pastello, Indigo, Patino and Sinopia. Installed price is about $400 a square foot (November 2004).
