Galloway is a quartz with a blend of different colors and material-inspired veins. An amalgamation of sea, sand, and pearl, the Galloway is named after the rocky coasts in Ireland. The veining of the Galloway is unique due to the shell-like texture that makes it so amenable to homeowners that want a distinct and one-of-a-kind stone integrated into their home.
The Galloway is a stone that conveys an array of mystique to the arrangements you’re considering for your kitchen or bathroom. The broad strokes of the Galloway are swift and the movement shows a picturesque representation of how a stone can be designed if the conditions are properly met. The spotting that follows the veining throughout the surface aesthetically dances with the veins. Although the veins are not completely full, the hues in the stone can be used for both unique modern settings or unique eclectic surroundings. Galloway is a stone that works with accent pieces and will work best with spaces that convey geometric shapes. The Galloway has the capacity to display a wide variety of different designs for the indoor space.
