Hemsworth is a quartz surface with a rip-roaring display. Resembling the appeal of art that reflects a symposium of dramatic black veins, the Hemsworth uses ink-black veins that seem almost representative of a calligraphy of its own. While the softer outlines complement the crackle of the ink-black veins, the Hemsworth is striated throughout a completely white canvas.
Although the veins are not completely one size or the other, the effect of the veins resemble an artisanal appearance of thin brushstrokes. The Hemsworth has a cascading surface that uses a pulsating effect throughout the stone. A saturation of the colors give many different possibilities in choices for the aesthetics that homeowners can arrange. Using the Hemsworth is a design that favors the saturation and emphasis on the outlines and the darker tones of certain areas throughout the stone. Hemsworth provides a sketch-like appearance. Like the traditional and decorative script of old, the Hemsworth will bring your spaces a noir-like semblance. Used for neutral settings, the Hemsworth is versatile and can arrange a particular amount of colors. Hemsworth is a great asset that works well with the interior of modern homes.
