Contrary to what many claim, Dolomite is a very sensitive stone. It cannot be services by anyone. It often etches like marble but is harder like granite when it comes to refinishing.
Dolomite is a relatively soft stone, like marble, so it can be badly damaged if exposed to excessive force. It can also be scratched and stained quite easily. Dolomite is also very susceptible to etching if exposed to acidic chemicals or abrasive cleaners.
Overall, dolomite shares many of the same weaknesses as marble although in comparison it is far less physically durable but much more heat resistant and much less porous. Therefore, not very difficult to damage a dolomite surface, especially if you do not immediately clean up any spills made on its surface with a neutral cleaner. Since it is a porous material, once a spill is made it is very difficult to remove it from the surface of the dolomite. The liquid can cause a lot of damage once it has penetrated the surface of the dolomite.
