squak mountain stone: a fibrous-cement material comprised of recycled paper, recycled glass, and low-carbon cement. material is hand-cast into “slabs” as an alternative to natural or quarried stone. resembles soapstone or limestones.
I like the niche behind range and backsplash height. Limestone Pavers. The primary purpose of a backsplash is practical: Honed antique limestone pavers cover the wall from the countertops up to the level of the range hood molding, creating the look of a country Italian kitchen. Beaded stone molding frames a mosaic-tiled niche above the range to provide a functional focal point for the room.
