What are the differences between the different types of natural stone?

Limestone and Marble show subtle veining and movement. They are sedimentary rocks composed primarily of calcium carbonate and so they are sensitive to acids. Marble derives from the Latin “marmor” which means “to shine,” so marbles are hard limestone that accept a polish well. Granites are harder rocks of volcanic origin and are not acid sensitive. Sometimes they have veining and movement, but they are generally selected for kitchen counters and high traffic floors where performance is the priority.
