As part of its Summer 2022 launch, Daltile is now offering two new natural quartzite extra-large slab products. Daltile’s new Caldera Blue and White Pearl are mined in Brazil, the ultimate source of the world’s finest natural quartzites.
“In the stone category, natural quartzite remains one of the most popular offerings,” said Roy Viana, director of natural stone and slab for Daltile. “Natural quartzites have the luxurious look and feel of marble with all the benefits of greater durability and hardness. When it comes to countertops, natural quartzite remains the fastest growing category in natural stone for countertops. For those looking for a softer look with more natural movements, natural quartzite is a good fit.
Viana also noted that Brazil is known for the quartzite it mines and ships around the world. “Daltile puts a tremendous amount of research and expertise into selecting the very best stone slabs Brazil has to offer.”
According to Viana, blue and gray stone offerings are steadily becoming popular within the design community and among end consumers. “Daltile’s Caldera Blue fulfills this need nicely with soft shades of blue and gray as the stone’s background, accentuated by white crystal and rusty veins adding uniqueness and majesty to this high-variation design,” he said.
Caldera Blue is available with a polished finish in ¾-in. and 1 ¼-in. thicknesses. This extra-large quartzite slab is suitable for use on countertops or walls.
White Pearl has an off-white background with taupe highlights, making this quartzite a material that goes well with many cabinet and floor colors. The design of this natural stone incorporates white veining features that can run vertically and horizontally, creating a unique medium variation pattern throughout.
White Pearl is available in both polished and leather finishes, in ¾-in. and 1 ¼-in. thicknesses. This extra-large quartzite slab is also suitable for use on countertops or on walls.
