Leather Absolute black sample is etching
I'm a bit bummed. We had finally decided on our countertops, found a fair price, brought a sample home and all.
Other sample I brought from this place (Kashmir) went through my lemon juice / oil tests fine. To my surprise, the leathered AB sample shows dull marks where I drop lime juice.
Since I cannot get a hold of the supplier today, I tried cleaning a part of the sample with paint solvent and re-did the test, no difference. The stone doesn't appear to have been dyed, left some oil overnight and all was fine. It is just the marks left by the juice.. What can I do, any other tests? How should I best approach the supplier about this?
