What is the resilience of Green River Stone fossils as compared to other solid surfaces?
Our select stone is freshwater limestone and has physical characteristics similar to marble. Hardness is between 3 and 4 on the Mohs scale, so some degree of care should be taken to prevent scratching. Do not put hot pots and pans directly on the stone, as delamination could occur.
How about Porosity?
Limestone is naturally porous, so we apply an impregnating sealer to our tabletops, countertops and backsplashes. Sealer should be re-applied periodically.
How should it be cleaned?
Fossil murals need only be dusted. Other surfaces should be cleaned with mild soap and water. Acidic spills can etch surfaces, even after sealing. Citrus juices, vinegar, wine, and alcohol should be promptly cleaned.
Can tiles be used in the shower or on vanities?
Yes, when properly sealed.
