20 years ago, it was not even an option to have a crystal countertop. Because gang saws were not able to cut a block of crystal found in a quarry, the main products available were limited to granite, marble, and a few quartzites. Thanks to modern day technology and the advancements in mining and polishing, polishing crystals is now possible! With the invention of the diamond multi-wire saw and abrasives for polishing, Cristallo quartzite is now available and in high demand.
Brazil is known for having the vastest crystal formations in the world and some states with these formations have not even been discovered yet! The abundance is a good thing because due to its dense characteristic, crystals, such as Cristallo Quartzite, are extremely durable. This stone is non-porous meaning it will not etch and can therefore be used inside and outside. It is a perfect choice for kitchen or bathroom countertops, floors, walls, fireplace, wet areas... the opportunities are endless.
