(tie) 8. Inspired by the look of natural onyx, Okite Pietre Preziose from Seieffe offers a deep, luminous color that brings design projects depth and the allure of precious stones in a 93% natural quartz compound. The highly heat-, stain- and scratch-resistant is durable, nonporous and, according to the company, never needs sealing.
The Pietre Preziose Collection is also translucent, allowing light to move through it to create a dramatic, modern look that is suitable for countertops, wall cladding, partitions and other indoor applications where natural onyx is used.
“It’s a great choice for countertops and showers, where it can be used vertically,” notes Mike Boyd, sales manager, Seieffe. “In addition to its durability, it does not promote the growth of mold, mildew or bacteria.”
This Collection is available in three color options presently: 9002 Honey, 9003 Red and 9004 White. OKITE’s entire line has over 50 color options, including the “Venati Collection” which was inspired by natural marble.
