GRANITE

Source: intrusive rocks are granular structure, consisting essentially of quartz, mica and other components.
Abrasion resistance: fairly high; scratches are very noticeable on light colors.
Polishing: rather durable, good wear resistance and contact with chemicals.
Absorption: like all natural stones liquids penetrate into the pores of the material, some of them (such as water) cause a wet effect that fades with evaporation, while others (such as oil and other fatty substances) leave of dark halos permanent. A good water-repellent treatment, repeated periodically, slows down the absorption and allows you to intervene before the liquid enters the stone; acidic substances (vinegar, lemon etc.) Typically do not leave traces after normal cleaning.
Thus it is good to opt for the kitchen granite countertops.

 

MARBLES
Source: limestone rocks that are, due to the dynamic or contact metamorphism took a crystalline structure to granular texture.
Abrasion resistance: not very high, any scratches can be mitigated by using wax for floors.
Polishing: durable, not as long as there is a frequent rubbing on the surface, to avoid contact with chemicals, acid-based.
Absorption: like all natural stones liquids penetrate into the pores of the material, some of them (such as water) cause a wet effect that fades with evaporation, while others (such as oil and other fatty substances) leave of dark halos permanent. Acidic substances (vinegar, lemon, etc.). Adversely affect the polishing. A good water-repellent treatment, repeated periodically, slows down the absorption and allows you to intervene before the liquid enters the stone, but offers no protection from the corrosive effects of acidic substances.
Breaking strength: high enough. Marble is cool for your interiors and hence you should opt for kitchen marble countertops.

To clean the surfaces of granites and marbles only use soap and water to avoid liquid detergents. It is important to immediately remove the dirt, to fresh stain, because with the passage of time, different substances can penetrate the pores of the material, is also essential to periodically renew the waterproofing treatment, using suitable products. Even for these plans is good not place pans or hot irons directly on the surface to prevent staining due to heat.
A top natural stone gives you the ultimate in aesthetic and allows you to rest quietly on the floor also hot dishes , counter does a bang and there is a risk that this could be scratched , stained , deteriorate or absorb some of the foods , especially those acid depending the material used. Being able to use the granite stones rather than a predominantly calcareous component, increases the cost.
A top plastic type quartzite, as compared to natural stone, do not absorb and are resistant to acids. For high temperatures, depends on the various products offered and the resin used. For many it is guaranteed the resistance to high temperatures but not for all. Better to inquire from time to time. Kitchen countertops 18940 are good for your interiors.
