The Harlech surface uses murky tropical colors to create a design that resembles regal undertones and palettes. Harlech is a depiction of hectic colors that somehow work together collectively. The name of this quartz surface refers to the Harlech Castle that overlooks the town of Snowdonia in Northern Wales.
Like river banks, the gravel gray veining throughout the quartz surface flows across the beige and brown crystalline patterns. The broad strokes of burnt gray have little flecks of white that sparkle all around Harlech, creating a stunning display of vibrant neutral tones. An immaculate stone that uses a dichotomy of two different pigments. Although these pigments are essentially amalgamations of different transitioning colors, the stone is beautiful due to this collocation in the Harlech. The aesthetic that is best-befitting of the Harlech is the Mid-Century Modern interior and is interpretive of expressionist appearances. Harlech can be used for many different purposes and aspects that would, as a result, prevent any physical damages or flaws. Using the Harlech will display certain areas of the surface to shimmer, while cohesively balancing the portions of the stone. The cloudiness that comes from the landscape appearance of the Harlech will ensure a pristine quality that will portray a streaming appeal.
