I just saw this and really would like it for my new kitchen. Are there any pros and cons with this granite? Is it very pourous? Stain easily? Does it have to be sealed more often then others? Is it prone to cracks? More fragile then others? I didn't see it on the "Black List".
And what does resin stone mean? Are all granites resin and how can you tell?
Thanks for your help!
Clare Very Happy

Verde Peacock is a good selection.

You shouldn't have any problems with it.

resining is good, they spread resin on the slab and polish it off so it fills in the tiny natural gaps in the stone. Makes for a better polish and less pitting. Most stones are resined, you tell by looking at the edges of the raw slab, you will see spilled resin, looks like varnish. IT is an excellent choice.

kasco - Thanks for the explanation about resin. I will have to ask if the slab has that or not. I am all for anything to help with cleaning and upkeep.
