Neopariés® is a unique crystallized glass material, which is an ideal alternative to stone for interior and exterior walls, interior floors, counters and table tops. With a marble-like appearance, it is available in large, flat or curved panels. Stronger than marble or granite, it may be used in thinner and lighter configurations, and is nearly graffiti proof.
