Important information about this material
Stone should be set in a medium to thick setting bed, due to inherent variations in thickness, length and width.

 Technical Performance Specs
Rating ABRASION RESISTANCE
(The ability of a material to resist surface wear.)
Medium This material has medium abrasion resistance. It rates as a 3.5-6.5 on the Mohs scale. It is more resistant to scratching than materials with a low abrasion resistance rating (i.e. certain marbles and limestones, onyx, schist and slate). It is not as resistant to scratching as materials with a high abrasion resistance rating (i.e. granite, quartzite and porcelain tile).
Rating ABSORPTION
(The relative porosity of a material.)
Moderate This material has a low to moderate absorption rate. Always seal this material prior to use. To reduce the appearance of stains, always wipe up spills immediately. Oil and highly-pigmented liquids can penetrate and stain the stone and may need poultice to remove the stain.
Rating ACID SENSITIVITY
(The likelihood of a material reacting to acidic foods or liquids.)
Minimal This material is minimally sensitive to acids. It will not acid etch or lose its surface sheen when exposed to acidic liquids such as lemons or tomatoes.
Rating FREEZE-THAW
(The ability of a material to withstand freeze-thaw cycles in exterior applications.)
All Exteriors Due to this material's Minimal or Moderate Absorption rating, its Abrasion Resistance rating, color fastness and tensile strength, this material is suitable for all exterior applications where freeze-thaw cycles are a concern. Use MIA standards for thickness in exteriors and consult an engineer regarding fastening systems and thickness/tensile strength required for your project. This material will patina.
