Aurora Surfaces (Formerly known as Accent Elegance)

AuroraSurfaces LLC reclaims taconite tailings from Northern Minnesota, and upcycles them – which means creating an all new, valued–added material, AuroraStone™. AuroraStone is an exclusive new material celebrated for its iridescent beauty and incredible versatility. As an artisanal décor material, it can be customized for a variety of residential or commercial uses,including garden furnishings, water features, wall sculptures, fireplace surrounds, vanity tops, and powder room basins. It is also enjoyed as the focal point in our artist designed accent tables, vessels, planters, centerpieces and other home furnishings.
