Dolomite countertops in your West Michigan home are particularly beautiful in appearance, with coloring and veining very similar to marble in appearance.
Dolomite is less porous than marble with a greater resistance to high temperatures from cooking.

Your Style

Dolomite countertops are highly polished slabs cut from the sedentary rock of the same name and comprised of limestone, lime mud, and magnesium-rich groundwater. They are found most often in colors of gray and white, with streaks that make it resemble marble even more closely than quartzite does. Although less common, dolomite is also found in hues of brown, pink, green, and black.

While dolomite often resembles marble in its beautiful appearance, it’s significantly more resistant to scratches than marble, very durable, easy to care for, and resistant to every day wear and tear. Dolomite countertops don’t absorb liquids like marble does, and they’re not as sensitive to acidic foods so they’re less susceptible to staining or etching. And dolomite handles heat and sunlight very well, so hot pans won’t scorch the surface. But to be on the safe side, always use a trivet or hot pad underneath them. 

Caring for your

Dolomite Countertops

Dolomite materials have more calcium carbonate in them than traditional granite which will make them slightly softer and a bit easier to scratch. They can be prone to etching like marbles but it is not common. Dolomite material is widely used in kitchen counter top applications but some extra caution is recommended.

  • Your new countertops can simply be cleaned with warm soapy water or any PH balanced cleaner and a soft sponge or cloth. No material (including quartz) is completely stain proof, so spills should be wiped up right away. Avoid using acidic cleaners that contain vinegar, lemon juice, bleach or ammonia. Avoid abrasive brushes, sponges, or dry cleansers. Rock Solid Granite Co seals all natural stones with a penetrating sealer to prevent staining. Your sealer will last 10+ years if you are using the right cleaners. 
  • Granite and quartz are both very hard materials which make them resistant to scratching. However, to avoid damage, refrain from using knives, screw drivers and other sharp objects directly on the surface. It’s best not to cut or chop directly on the surface. Never cut on marble, dolomite, or soapstone. 
  • All materials can chip or crack (even quartz) so take care in your kitchen, especially with heavy items in your sink.
