Black Forest Polished is a granite slab with large black grains and veins of light gray.
Granite is an incredibly hard and dense natural material that is commonly used for kitchen countertops because it is resistant to scratching, acids, and heat.
Because it is incredibly hard and dense and is non-absorbent, granite can also be used in wet areas, on floors, walls, fireplace surrounds and in outdoor applications.
The shine on polished granite is polished into the surface using fine abrasives. It is not a topical coating and will not wear off from normal use.
The Leather finish is applied to the surface with diamond - tipped brushes that leave a dimpled texture.
Although granite is resistant to acid etching, it isn’t indestructible. Over time,acidic cleansers may cause pitting. We recommend using a pH-natural stone cleanser.
Monterrey Tile does not recommend placing hot items directly on the surface of any natural stone slab. The sudden temperature change can cause thermal shock, which may crack the surface. Additionally, liquids and oils on the surface of a hot pot/pan can cause discoloration.
