Sealing outdoor patio flagstone

I recently had a flagstone patio instaled in my yard. I notice when the flagstone is wet is looks much more rich and beautiful. Is there a way to treat the flagstone to give it that "wet" look all the time? I've been told to seal it and then apply some other product to enhance the colors. Any suggestions from the pro's?

thanks...scotty

A color enhancing penetrating sealer will give you the look you want. Most are not very UV stable and will require re-application about every 6 months, but this is something you should be able to do yourself.
