A good alkaline heavy duty stone cleaner should clean it up before you polish.

I would use an epoxy on the crack...that should hold up better than polyester

use a silcone based caulk

I would appreciate some direction on servicing this fire place. I need to do the following:

·         Clean up the overall appearance. They are not looking for high gloss, but perhaps more clarity in the stone.

·         I need to fix a crack on the mantel, what type of adhesive would be appropriate for that type of environment that is possible high heat or warm.

·         They want the seams re-caulk, what type of caulk I can use again in area that will get warm or hot.
