Arkansas stones consist of silica, but unlike synthetic abrasives, do not consist of individual abrasive grains of the same size. Arkansas quartz structure consists of fused crystal grains of different sizes.
Mountain View is preliminarily flattened and does not require flattening after purchase. Mountain View stones should be used with water or oil as a lubricant.
