Serpentine stone?? Can you tell me...

16 years ago

I've fallen for a stone for my countertops which I understand is a serpentine. It looks and tests plenty hard, and NOTHING will permeate it.

I would like it a bit darker, but the sealer/enhancer I tried on it doesn't really change it. I used mineral oil on it and it simply evaporated away after a few minutes.

Maybe if I had it honed a bit rougher, it would hold the sealer/enhancer...?

Anyway, does anyone have any experience with using this type of stone, and could you give me your impressions of it? Does it hold up, does it chip or scratch with use, does the color richen with use (as the distributor claims)?
