corner shelves

I was told shower corner shelves that are made from crushed stone and resin don't have to be sealed but yet they darken when wet. Should they be sealed or don't bother??? thanks ray

My understanding is that sealing is for stain prevention not so much as water repelling.

Depends on what ya like... I wouldn't want them turning darker each time they got wet... Personal preference...

If it's taking on moisture, I'd seal it.
Is the rest of your shower stone? Have you sealed that?

the rest of the shower is tile and marble listellos. Everything is sealed twice. I was told by a few people the stone look-alike shelves didn't have to be sealed but after seeing them take on water like they have been I figured what the hell. It can't hurt. I sealed them yesterday. thanks guys ray
