Important information about this material
This material is quarried in the United States and may qualify for LEED MR Credits 5.1 and 5.2. This stone has some element of free iron in it which can oxidize or rust over time when exposed to heat or moisture. This is inherent in the material. If this is a concern, choose a different material. See the Applications Guide PDF for alternatives.

 Technical Performance Specs
Rating ABRASION RESISTANCE
(The ability of a material to resist surface wear.)
Low This material has low abrasion resistance. It rates as a 1-3 on the Mohs scale. Light scratching will occur with exposure to sand and other abrasives. The finish will patina or dull over time as a result of this scratching. Always use a cutting board for countertop applications and walk-off mats at entrances in flooring applications.
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.)
High This material is highly sensitive to acids. Acid etching will be highly visible on this material when exposed to acidic foods such as lemons or tomatoes. Do not use this material on kitchen countertop applications where acid etching is a concern. If acid etching is a concern, select a minimally sensitive material.
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.
