not all natural stones are susceptible to acids. I've had granite countertops that truly were bulletproof and even after several years, did not need to be resealed. IF there is calcite in the stone, that is what reacts to acids.. and not all natural stone contains calcite. Or, it's a reaction between
would any natural stone, clean up spills as soon as you can and be careful with acidic products, those will eat through the finish on any stone but may show more on a white one.
Sorry. One more question. Does natural quartz have the same issues (scratching, staining, etc) as marble? Or is it more duarble
quartzite is natural. The picture above is referred to as "real quartz", but it's quartzite. Caeserstone, etc. is advertised as 94% quartz, but that's by weight, not volume. Despite what many say about quartz being bulletproof, it CAN etch/stain/scratch. My hunch is it's a reaction between acids and the

I love the black soapstone with the marble on the island. Would a kitchen look ok using black soapstone on my counters
Is the black countertop granite or soapstone? Beautiful and functional. Bravo!
thanks ...are they durable do they chip or stain form oil or acid?
wine, acids or chemicals. The only maintanance recommended, not required, is the mineral oil treatment to enhance the natural darkening process the stone goes through and to ensure the soapstone darkens evenly. Mineral oil is not recommended to protect the soapstone, it does not need protection since
it is naturally non porous. Cleaning your soapstone tops can be done with any of the common household cleaners, no need to buy special sealants or other "hard to find" often harsh chemicals.
