Marble has become very popular, especially in kitchens, because of its soft beauty. But with marble comes some potential problems. Compared to other stones, marble is a fairly soft stone, and because of that it can get scratched or etched easily. It is very sensitive to acid-based juices like tomato and lemon juice. Other liquids that can cause etching are coffee, and wine (Especially red wine). Etched Marble
When a liquid with an acid base is spilled on the marble stone surface the acid reacts with calcium carbonate and it starts eating away, or etching the surface a little bit at a time. When this happens dull spots, also called etches, show up as a permanent mark on the surface. Etches are not stains, and therefore cannot simply be cleaned up with a cleaner or polish. They remain on the surface permanently.
This is where Sheerstone comes in. The Sheerstone chemical and process renews the etched surface of the stone into a like-new surface and applies a permanent sealer which protects and warrants against future etching problems.
