Inverness Platinum Quartz
Inverness Platinum is a white quartz surface with inline dark gray veins that have a delicate charcoal coloration. The reason why the stone is referred to as a platinum stone is because of the premium qualities that the surface is derived from. Inverness Platinum is especially known for its inclusive appeal of veining.
Crackles that are strengthened in certain portions will amplify the more vague speckles that flow around the outlines, the Inverness Platinum can be defined as something poetically graceful. Although the fractured design is something engaging, it is what will ultimately entice the homeowner to apply as an indoor surfacing project, which is typically done as countertops and backsplashes. The Inverness Platinum maintains silver hairlines that surround the gray delineations. Simplicity is what defines this quartz surface and it is the refined features that make this such an effortless stone option amongst homeowners. Like the fine grains of an exotic wood, the Inverness Platinum will act as an even finer addition to one’s home. Scattered yet befitting, the quartz would function as the focal point to your aesthetic decor.
