CaesarStone is an engineered stone that we have been selling.  It has many of the same characteristics as granite.  Such as the durability of the stone.  You can place hot items directly on the counter top, it does not chip or crack easily, and it is easy to clean.  However, one of the disadvantages of the stone is the lack of natural beauty.  BUT, movement and lack of control is not for everyone.  In the larger cities CaesarStone is dominating the markets due to its contemporary characteristics.  CHECK IT OUT!
