Tips For Cleaning Up Cut Marks On Flagstone/metaquartzite


I've got a project where some subs laid down this metaquartzite stone for a wall cap.

Unfortunately, they laid a lot of pieces with cut ends facing out. They also finished cut the edges to make them more even, but now we've got about 75% of the visible edges showing grinder cut marks.

Any tricks for removing those cut marks without damaging the stone?

A hot torch, a bucket of water, and a splash brush.
