Once the undisputed king of high-end kitchens, granite now faces stiff competition from a variety of natural and manufactured stone countertops. All are beautiful and durable, but newcomer Curavo offers a little more. It's made largely of recycled materials and it's easily repaired.

In a factory operating on natural light and producing no waste water, recycled glass chips, sea shells and pottery fragments are bound by concrete. The resulting countertop slabs refract light like so many tiny prisms.

This head-turner of a countertop is tough as well, holding up to heat, scratches and stains. It requires yearly sealing to avoid water and acid stains. Should you ever get a crack or chip in Curavo, the countertop is easily repaired on site.

Shown here is the newest "limited" line, Saroniko Clay and Pacific Blue.

Curavo is only available in large slabs one and a quarter inches thick, 114" long and 56" deep. The material is cut to size when it's installed.
