Are they sealed? Will they etch from lime juice, etc.? - Are they sealed against staining? Etching from acids?

They have a very high content of 'Ooli' or egg shape microscopic crystals which gives them a natural coat against many acids and that naturally also represents a very low absorption rate as well as a high compressive strength. So in short no need to seal them but if you still feel like doing so, you can seal our stone with any stone sealer. Try finding an eco-friendly sealer that doesn't have any BPA in it that's our recommendation. Ecos, makes a great non-toxic all purposes stone sealer that we like here's the link:

I've never seen these rough edge counters. I love the thickness. Like the back splash being stone too (like sideways better). I'm not sure about the sharp edges on the counter. It's kind of cool, but I'd have to see. This is lighter than I like

Antique Thick Limestone Countertops, AKA Foundation Slabs

Product name: Antique Thick Limestone Countertops, AKA Foundation Slabs.
Contacts:(212) 461-0245 Email:

Those centuries old foundation Slabs were once the thick building blocks of old villas & farmhouses. Those blocks could be found at the bottom support base of many older reclaimed structures. We are passionate about milling them down to 2.5" in thickness so they could be used on counters and pool copings. Yes counters! Those thick & massive chucks of Limestone absorb nothing and can stand up to anything you can throw at them.
Virtually indestructible, they are ideal for anyone who is a great cook and who doesn’t want to worry about leaving wine rings, lime juice or oil stains on their counters while cooking or entertaining guests.
If you practically live in your kitchen which is true for many of us, you have no choice but to consider incorporating the foundation slabs as your kitchen countertops.
Make your kitchen fun and enjoy the best countertops available on earth by securing some of those slab cuts today.
