What is Etching?

Etching is the term used to describe the result of an acidic liquid reacting with a stone that contains the mineral calcium carbonate or calcite. When acidic substances meet with calcium carbonate, the two react with one another and the calcium carbonate is dissolved. On polished stone, the result is a dull spot and on honed finishes, the outcome is a dark area where the reaction happened.

Directions for Use

Using Lustro Italiano is simple and only requires two additional things: 1) patience and 2) Elbow Grease. Etching can be repaired by following these steps:

  1. Apply a spoonful of Lustro Italiano compound to the discoloration you are removing.
  2. Using a cloth, rub the Lustro Italiano over the blemish using a circular motion.
  3. After 2 to 3 minutes, the etch will be removed from the surface of the stone.
  4. You may need to repeat the process a time or two (this is where the patience and elbow grease come in) for some etch marks.
  5. Lustro Italiano may also be used with a buffer.
