of Course you search the manufactures website...But i was wondering if its specification sheet matches what actually is as to staining, scratching and various other benefits?
apparently its been installed in places like California, etc. here in Florida it seems we are the last to know about innovative products..I do my part in always bringing in new products, which increase cost of shipping...just wondering..I love fabricating it..just did the job below

    Interesting product, I had never heard of it but it is beautiful. I wonder about using it as a countertop though because of scratching.

    Interesting top. We offer Fusion Glass at our shop for countertops, which is comprised of several layers of glass fused together in a kiln, but this looks different.

    Elizabeth...many do..its just as hard as granite and even harder than marble...I think because its FUSED glass chips all put together..I guess if you hit it with a hammer just like granite or concrete it will break..but the scratching is my concern as well..it says its repairable...but to me from repairing granite cracks etc..the polishing out the scratch may have potential customers nervous. check out their MFg link that shows the stats http://www.glass2.com/about-glass2.asp Thanks..for the comment..I know dark Corian scratches like crazy..they say sand it out..but who wants to do that..LOL

    here in Florida guys I just seen it...but apparently its been around California for awhile...of course they get all the cool stuff first. But I cannot answer as far as cloudy goes..its fused glass.and resin free...so if it gets cloudy.it may be a knock off..but Ill keep you posted guys..the people who bought it off me are aware it is a new product and were aware it was my first time fabricating this product...so they will tell me everything...I really hope I dont hear its getting cloudy..I hope Angela didnt jinx me..LOL .I will post more close up pics soon..I have a great weekend guys
