No matter the finish you choose the maintenance will almost remain the same. However, a honed, flamed or leathered Arabian Black granite will require sealer as it opens the natural pores of the stone a bit more than a polished finish.
Arabian Black granite can stain with certain liquids. However due to the fact that it is a dark stone you will unlikely notice any stains. A grease stain could darken the surface in some areas but a red wine spill that is left will not cause any red discoloration but could cause a dark spot just like grease would cause.
Most people think that they do not have to seal black material. This is far from true. A black material will loose its shiny finish and stain. Most of the time a stain will be a dark area on your countertop. Stains from grease are the main fault of Arabian Black granite.
