help - etching in new granite countertops??
We recently renovated our kitchen and used a granite or what we were told was quartzite actually. It's gorgeous, mostly grey color. (see link below for slab) We have only been using it a few months and when the light shines right we started to notice the top finish is showing spots and rings where there is etching. I actually see a pattern that matches exactly the shape of my stainless steel cheese grater??? The installer looked and said it was etching. I'm told we have to have the tops repolished but that won't solve the problem, it will just try to get out the existing etching.
Has anyone ever heard of this happening? We didn't have this problem with our granite at our old house. I didn't expect it and I'm really disappointed. (We don't use anything strange to clean it or in our cooking or preparing foods.)
Any advice at all is appreciated.
