Saw this today; they just need to invent a floating wine glass too!

Oh, that is really cool!

But I'll wait till the price comes down. :-)

Very interesting. I do not get etches from coffee cups on my marble. I don't have any wine glass ring etches either, for that matter. Etches, yes. But not from anyone's beverage cup/glass.

well, on my counters the little part of that mug that touches the counter would leave a mark.

Everyone knows to get a coaster around here. However, just the other night, someone (who does know better) had a beer bottle, put it down for a second or two, then picked it back up. I looked the next day. Dang. a 1/2 circle.

I don't fret too much. Like I say, it's the circles that drive me. The splats? eh, no worries they blend.

Funny, but seems to me that's what saucers are for, with more room for drips and spills.

Just a mug or a wine glass on marble is enough to leave an etch? Even when dry?

NO.

No. A mug is not enough to leave an etch. The coffee or tea in it will NOT etch. At least with my Carrara marble. A wine glass will NOT etch. If you spill wine, it will etch. A beer bottle will NOT etch. Beer will NOT etch.

Breezy I wouldn't think so but Bee says hers does. If that's the case I wouldn't think you could put anything on the counter, not even something decorative.
Bee why do mugs leave a mark? Are they wet, is it the heat, or??

Bee has Super White counters, which claim to be quartzite. Unfortunately, hers has enough of the composition of marble that she has etching. A true marble will not etch with a mug, wine glass (unless spilled), coffee, tea, or beer bottle.
