Appreciate Marble as Simple, Natural Beauty
Straight from nature,each slab of marble is one of a kind. A more unique look to your marble can be attained through two types of finishes, honed or polished. A honed finish is created by sanding the surface so that it has a matte appearance. Honed marble won’t show scratches or etching as much as polished, but it will stain more easily. A polished finish is shiny and glossy. This finish won’t stain as easily, but it will show scratches and etching, especially in bright sunlight.
