Description

Cintilante is a quartzite surface that utilizes a white background and a collection of highly faint light gray veins. Almost a light blue contrast to the regular gray palettes that the veins display, the Cintilante is a natural stone that is quarried directly from the United States. A quartzite surface that is known for its artisanal resemblance to abstract expressionism.

The strokes of the broad veining make this quartzite surface a very distinct and indiscernible design compared to other natural stones. Although some of the design utilizes lighter brown veins that vaguely follows the movement of the blue-gray veins, the focal point of Cintilante comes from the slightly dramatic look that the palettes provide. Resembling the appearance of a porcelain vase, the Cintilante is a great example of emphasizing the aesthetic through one central style that offers more than just the appeal of adding a stone to one’s open space concepts. Homeowners can experience a sense of glamor with the installation of Cintilante throughout the various indoor surfacing applications available for quartzite.
