Banging on my marble - oops!
I've had my statuary marble for about a year. I love it. I have etches on it. I wish I didn't, but I do and I don't really care - I love my marble! Tonight I was filling some Mason jars with spices and kind of banging the jar so the contents would settle and I could fit more in. I did this with a couple pint jars and had no issue. Then I did it with a quart jar. Uh-oh. There were marks where I was hitting the glass bottom onto the marble. The marks were white dots almost. Like when you hit the concrete sidewalk hard with a rock. The bottoms of the quart jars are bumpy; the bottoms of the pint jars are smooth. So I have about 30 or so little white marks on the marble in the small area where I was banging the jar down. Oops! I still love my marble and even this won't bother me by tomorrow (I'm already getting over it), but I wanted to share in case anyone else thought to do the same thing. No banging glass down on your marble if you don't want marks on it!
