Make sure you TEST this product first.

Grab a scrap piece of stone, and apply AS MANY COATS AS YOU PLAN TO PUT ON YOUR PROJECT. This product WILL darken the stone significantly, and it may not be the look you want.
I tested one coat on a scrap piece and loved the look. After applying 2 coats the stone is now WAY too dark. I used "Indian Autumn" slate which has dark greys, oranges and greens, and looks stunning when the tile is wet. I was looking for this same stunning look with all the colours and highlights popping after applying the enhancer, but it darkened everything so much that the colours just blend into the dark grey areas. When I look at the project now, I just see a uniform darkness with very little colour.
I think this is a great product. It applies well, the matte look is great, and on a lighter stone it would probably look wonderful. But, don't make the same mistake I did. Test, test and test some more before you darken your project more than you expected.
