Vicenza by CRL Quartz
Vicenza Quartz Material Description
Vicenza is a light grey, marble look quartz material that comes in a polished texture. It is supplied to Polish Granite by CRL company specialising in stone slab production.
Why Vicenza is the perfect material for stone kitchen worktops?
To this day, quartz remains one of our best-selling stone worktops products. It is nearly infallible, defined by near-indestructible properties, easy cleaning & maintenance, but above all exceptional beauty. Quartz is modern, stylish, sleek and perfectly slots into any environment, as though it naturally belongs there.
The light grey, marble look Vicenza quartz worktops are incredibly sturdy and resistant to abrasion, cutting, staining and general wear and tear that impact other, weaker materials, like wood or laminate worktops. You may cut vegetables, fruit or meat directly on a quartz surface, forgoing the need for chopping boards. Even the sharpest of blades won’t scratch this durable stone.
The sleek quartz kitchen worktops are also completely waterproof. Since they are man-made products, they are imbued during the production process with special resins and agents that prevent all water absorption. Therefore, even if you leave a coffee, wine, grease or water spill over night, the worktop won’t soak any of it up, leaving the colour and pristine shine entirely unharmed.
Discolouration, chipping, and warping aren’t a threat to veined Vicenza kitchen quartz worktops. These are products blessed with incredible longevity and unmatched durability. In essence, these tops are a one-off purchase that lasts a lifetime.
What thicknesses are available for Vicenza?
The slabs of Vicenza by CRL are available in 20mm or 30mm thicknesses. This stone material depth is ideal for multiple applications. From big projects like kitchen worktops, paving, flooring & wall cladding to smaller installations of coffee tabletops, dining tables or windowsills. Surfaces of this depth are manufactured in bespoke fashion, tailor-made to complete even the most demanding projects.
What makes Vicenza so unique?
Product colour description:
The light grey colour of Vicenza by CRL is without a doubt the most frequently purchased hue in our collection. This is today’s trend, after all. Grey spaces no longer evoke the feeling of industrial melancholy, instead elements like light grey kitchen worktops are implemented into modern architecture because they represent novelty and minimalism. A highly sought-out, attractive colour that instantly becomes the heart of any setting. And because of its deemed universality, it pairs with almost every type of cabinet, from white gloss, through to black matte or brown, classic raw wood.
The marble look pattern contains veins streaming and pulsating down the length of Vicenza by CRL. They animate this surface, granting it energy, depth and chromatic richness. Organic, marble effect colours pair well with a cabinet of virtually any colour. But above all, they are stand-out centrepieces on kitchen islands, where the organic patterns cascade down the edge, flowing onto the adjoining side panels. This natural theme is universally applicable to similar or contrasting colours.
Material structure & composition:
Fans of organic accents displayed on worktop surfaces will find products like Vicenza immensely alluring. Thick, long contrasting veins diffuse sporadically across the slab in a breath-taking display of novel eccentricity. Our marble-look range of colours is in top 5% of best-selling products. The marble imitation conveyed across this slab is contemporary, fashionable and trendy, befitting most spaces, whether private homes or public workplaces.

- Splashbacks and Full splashbacks,
- Elegant offices & receptions,

What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
The light grey, marble look Vicenza by CRL can be supplied in a ‘polished’ texture. This means a scintillating gloss that beautifully reflects the light and highlights the true colours & pigments embedded within the product. The polished texture is one of the most popular surface finishes, mostly present among quartz worktops and granite worktops, although ceramic suppliers also adopt this finish for their stone slabs. These surfaces are easy to clean and prevent all liquid absorption.
CRL (CR Laurence), leading suppliers of quartz stone, are based in Rochdale, Greater Manchester. Located close to our Polish Granite showroom, CRL to this day remains one of our main partners. Their comprehensive assortment of quartz slabs (designs, patterns, hues) impresses most of our customers, as they meet the highest standards of quality. Thanks to CRL’s diversified range of slabs, e.g. the veined Vicenza, our customers may choose a dreamed-of worktop surface that suits their unique interior.
It could be a ‘natural’ themed creamy colour containing irregular veins and speckles running through it like minute rivers. Or a vibrant, grey-blue shade with wave-like patterns stretch across the surface. There are just under 50 colours, each with unique character, that make up the CRL palette.
Thanks to their high levels of innovation, CRL were able to create quartz materials that resist absorption, heat or impact damage. Discolouration is neither a problem. As such, the compact CRL products are highly recommended for quartz worktops that are exposed daily to sharp knives, liquids or potential wear and tear.
