Caring for Calcareous Stone

Unique Care Needed for Calcareous Stone

Stone with high levels of calcium carbonate are referred to as calcareous stone. These kinds of natural stone require an added bit of awareness. Additionally, they have the potential of receiving a particular kind of discoloration. Some types of calcareous stone include:

  • Marble
  • Limestone
  • Travertine
  • Onyx

Calcareous stone types are some of the most elegant stones that can be used for home furnishings. They are a precious addition to homes all over the world. They also have some specific requirements that must be considered to keep them looking their best.

Certain substances can react with calcite and destroy it. That is unfortunate because the calcite in these materials is what contributes to their majestic and unique appearance. When the calcite is destroyed, that part of the stone looks dull and is very noticeable. If the stone is polished, the etch looks like a dull spot. If the stone is honed, the etch makes the surface look dark.

Keeping calcareous materials such as marble, travertine, limestone, and onyx sealed well and having the proper care products on hand for quick clean up of spills that can damage calcite is imperative. This area features everything you need to care for your calcareous surfaces and maintain them for resistance to oil and water based liquids that could discolor them.

  • Travertine Care

    Caring for travertine is similar to caring for other stones that contain calcium carbonate. So many of the products on the site that are used for marble will also work on travertine. However, this list also includes products specifically for travertine.

  • Calcareous Stone Kits

    Marble care kits allow you to maintain your natural marble stone by caring for it with a cleaning and polishing routine. There are also kits that include cures for discolorations that marble is susceptible to.
