RE: Countertops - Honing White Grante / Quartzite & Care of Pietr (Follow-Up #4)

I honed our slabs of White Princess. Search it on this forum--there are lots of pics of my counters. They don't etch but I did leave red wine on a test piece for 48 hours and it left a shadow. After 48 hours the shadow kinda disappeared. I have since sealed all my honed counters and backsplashes.

For me I love the honed look of marble, but since I didn't have marble, I still wanted that matte look. When the slabs were honed, it brought our the iridescent quality of the mica that is embedded in the quartz....it's like shiny opal cross sections. I just love it! Hope you love yours too.
