The kitchen is probably the most frequented place in our homes. It’s also where we keep our food, drinks, etc. So ensuring it is a warm, inspiring environment is key to our mental wellbeing.
So if you want to turn your cooking area into something truly inspiring and amazing, a place that is animated with vibrant, lively color and positive energy, then gemstone countertops
are a great place to start!
Gemstone countertops are made from semiprecious stones like Hematite, Tigers-eye, and Amethyst which are embedded in a resin base.
Gem Surfaces is
one of the leading businesses that has all but mastered the special technique that allow them to create these durable mosaics like no other. The
result is absolutely breathtaking.
Aside from obviously being very unique and breath takingly gorgeous, these
countertops are also stain and heat resistant. They are also super easy to clean when there is a bit of mess going on,
because they are non-porous.

Amethyst is a semiprecious stone and one of the most luxurious
countertop options available. Washed with rich violet and purple tones,
these slabs reflect elegant quality and dazzle amid intense light. With
an enigmatic and intriguing crystal-like quality, amethyst stirs the
imagination and inspires creativity.
The use of white tones in this kitchen complements to the bright
purple tones of the countertop and helps the countertop to stand out
from the rest of the décor. The elegance of amethyst works well with
both traditional and contemporary luxury designs.

It is also smooth and non-porous, perfect for resisting even the toughest spills. Without the use of waxes or sealants, a quartz countertop can retain its luster for many years.
Quartz is the style chameleon of countertops. Whether you like modern or traditional, apple green or ecru, refined or honed, patterned or speckled, there are a myriad of options in quartz. It also works beautifully with traditional design materials like glass, chrome, stainless steel, brass, tile, wood, etc.

material are the same. Therefore, it produces an exotic and lustrous
look. It is incredibly durable and is harder than standard quartz. These
