Does anyone have any experience with this Dolce Vita or white macaubas? I'm wondering about things like etching and staining.
Here's the Dolce Vita:
Here's a closeup:
Here's the White Macaubus I was shown:

That Dolce Vita is to die for!!! Just wanted to say how beautiful it is but no I don't have any experience with it.
I'm doing the lemon, mustard and oil test as we speak. Cross your fingers!
A few of us have WM and love it. No etching or staining at all.
But out of your particular slabs, I much prefer the DV. It's prettier. WM usually wows me but doesn't here. I'd go for the DV. It's gorgeous!
That Dolce Vita is gorgeous!!! Very, very, very nice. Hope it passes the test!
Here's the news on the Dolce Vita:
Mustard, pasta sauce, olive oil, marg - no problem
Lemon - 5 min - no problem
1.5 hours - not too bad
24 hours - BIG WHITE CHALKY ROUGH ETCH ( but seems not as bad after drying....so we'll see if it bothers me in a day or so....)
The macaubas so far seems fine, but I've only tested the 1.5 hours and the sample I have seems quite grey compared to the slab so I'm not sure I'd trust the test anyway.
DV is fab!!! no experience with it, but it is gorgeous!!!!
Here's a better view of the Macaubas. I think the lower left of this huge slab would look good if I can't live with the Dolce Vita etching. I'm using soapstone (grey/black not green) for the perimeter counters.
View of right side of slab:
I could use the top of the slab as well and it would look a lot like marble.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO???
