Italian term or phrase: granitura
From a museum entry on Gentile da Fabriano
Poi c'è un altro dettaglio che vale la pena di essere osservato - riprende Andrea De Marchi - sul fondo oro sono incisi sei angeli, minutamente incisi, alla prima possono anche sfuggire, sono realizzati semplicemente con la cosiddetta granitura, un'incisione puntiforme, con uno stiletto appuntito che punzecchia la superficie dell'oro e in questo modo crea le ombre e le luci, o meglio la granitura determina la luce e dà corpo a queste figurette di angeli che traspaiono nell'oro come vere e proprie creature immateriali".

I understand what it is - it is explained - but I'm struggling to find its name in English. Any ideas?

Thanks very much in advance.
