Granite chip repair

Hi
I have a small chip (about 4 mm) on the corner of the kitchen granite work top, absolutly no idea how it happened, but its there.
Does anyone know a company that repairs chips like this at all?
Thanks

Re: Granite chip repair

I am in exactly the same boat - mystery chip in Kitchen work top (but how on earth did it get there ???).

Anyways, it's there, and so I am also looking for hints/tips/repair ideas. If there are any ideas for repair companies out there, ideally in Basel, this almost one year on from the former OP's post, please do let me know!

Re: Granite chip repair

Granite is porous and absorbs liquids. It is sensitive to acids, even acids in foods. Beware of citric acids, vinegar, and even lotions. It could weaken the stone is places, making it easier to chip. So you would want to blot out any spills as soon as possible.
