Specialty is a category of natural stone specific to Terrazzo and Marble. Most specialty stones are similar to quartzites in appearance and durability with the major difference being Specialty materials can etch from house hold acids due to the calcium or dolomite content. Specialty offers a wide variety of colors and patterns, many of these providing a bold look that is sure to make a statement. Specialty stones are heat resistant and are typically more stain, scratch and etch resistant than marbles or limestone’s. More resistant does not mean “proof” for that reason care should still be taken to avoid scratching and house hold acids that can result in etching. Sealer should be applied to avoid staining. Pending the end users tolerance for normal wear and tear, regular maintenance should be expected over time. When your project calls for bold colors and patterns specialty natural stone may be your answer.
