Help with tiling bath in new construction

It's done! I had to take many months off because of shoulder surgery and the need to actually work on rooms other than the bathroom but finally I'm finished (except for the birdbath in the shower!). Will be moving on to the backsplash in the kitchen soon...Hope everyone has been well...

Hi guys...well, now that the bathroom is finished I've moved on to the kitchen - I tiled the bay window using multi-colored slate from India. I cut the 12x12's into four 6x6's and I'm going to use this on the backsplash too. I'm wondering if there is any way to get a shiny look on the slate...something beyond what the sealer does (btw, what happened to the wonderful TYW products?)?

Unfortunately MJ the chemist became a recluse someplace in the Rockies where we can't get our ha...er, where he is contemplating his navel.

I'm not an expert on this stuff yet but we might be able to help with our new product line StoneTech.

Just doing some research...should the slate be sealed or impregnated before I grout? I have quite a bit of TYW Sealer but I'm wondering if the Stonetech Impgregnator would be a better choice? What would the difference be and would I be able to achieve the 'shiny' look I'm after?
