Soooooooo what gives? Seem to be getting hairline cracks in the stone. There also seems to be some kind of dark spot/stain in the other side. I treat it exactly the same as my Chosera 1000, and nothing has happened to that stone. Am I doing something wrong? I soak the stone for about 30 minutes, flatten probably every other time I use it with a DMT XX course, and when I'm done I let the stones dry completely. Any suggestions would be nice, not trying to destroy an expensive stone. Thanks!
