We are considering using this material for our upcoming kitchen remodel. Any opinions on this surface? Thanks!

Never heard of it, but turns out it's concrete with crushed glass (and seashells). If this is the look you want, sounds like a good option for you. I would consider quartz (Caesarstone, Dupont Zodiaq, Samsung Radianz, etc.), because the quartz/stone aggregate is probably tougher than the glass.

If you or your SO is VERY hands on, DIY poured-in-place concrete counters sounds like a very cheap option that will give you the same look. Lots of people make their own custom concrete countertops with pebbles/aggregate/glass etc. that is essentially this.

I loved it until I saw the price and went with Cambria

We are using GlassRecycled which is similar but resin-based instead of concrete.

Curava has switched to a resin base, according to their website.

I was just looking at the resin based glass - wonder about the price?
