It's very hard so doesn't chip and is beautiful and smooth.
Downside, I dont think that many plasters would do it and therefore expect to pay $$$$$.

At night though with the light from their downlights hitting the walls it was quite stunning and shimmered even more.
It was a subtle but impressive effect.
The head plasterer was German from memory.
It was not cheap though.
