Honed Silver Gray Quartzite with a Striking Brushed Finish

Brushed Honed Silver Gray quartzite

Honed Silver Gray Quartzite is an impressive stone all by itself however adding a brushed finish makes these 6X12 tiles sparkle. The tiles have less of a flat polished feel and more of a smooth weathered texture. Available sizes range from 1X1 to 24X24 and we also stock ¾ inch slabs for vanity tops and other decorative features. Slabs of any length can be brushed however the width is limited to 27 inches.

CleftStone can apply a brushed finish to tiles of all sizes. The tiles in these photos are Brazil Black Slate in a 24 inch Agra Fort pattern, however a brushed finish is available for most other stones in our collection. For most slate, limestone and travertine tiles the brushed finish adds a silky smooth texture, whereas for heavier clefted quartzite, the finish is smooth yet slightly more gritty.

Chevron Patterns Are Sharp And Stylish

Random Ashlar Patterns and Natural Stone: A Perfect Pairing

When it comes to picking a pattern the possibilities are virtually infinite, but the general concept is quite simple: tiles interlock to create a single Module, which then creates a random, natural repeating pattern. Why pick a pattern over same-sized tiles? The answer is mostly aesthetic. Patterns create an illusion of both randomness and balance, which in turn tricks the eye into seeing a more natural space. Combine that with our natural stone and the end product is truly inspiring.
