Sealer have come a long way during the years, you can always consult with your fabricator/installer on which kind of sealer they use and its performance. Recommended sealers for natural stones are Non water based sealer, with smaller molecules, this sealer penetrate in the porous of the stone for a longer lasting period.
We recommend Stain Proof sealer produced by the brand Dry Treat. This sealer molecules are hundreds of times smaller than competitor stone sealers and penetrate much deeper into the pore structure and retains natural surface color and finish. 15 year written performance warranty can be provided if applied by a Dry-Treat Accredited Applicator.

There's nothing more beautiful than the permanence of natural stone. With the right care and regular maintenance, your stone can last a lifetime.
Natural stone is categorized into three basic geological classifications by their respective formation processes: Sedimentary, Metamorphic and igneous. Additionally, stones in each category can be either Calcareous or Siliceous.
Calcareous (Marble, Serpentine, Limestone, Travertine, Onyx)
This type of stone is composed mainly of calcium carbonate, a chemical compound commonly found in natural stone, shells and pearls. Calcium Carbonate is sensitive to acidic solutions so mild, non-acidic cleaners are recommended. More specific guide for Marble family stones (HERE)
Siliceous (Granite, Quartzite, Slate, Soapstone, Sandstone)
This type of stone, as the term implies, is one composed primarily of silicates, such as quartz, feldspar, mica, etc. as such, a siliceous stone is generally resistant to most acids found in kitchen settings, although acidic cleaners are still not recommended, as these stones may contain trace levels of minerals that are acid sensitive.
