Polished

Polished stone has a shiny, mirror-like surface.

Honed

Honed stone has a matte or satin finish for a softer, more subdued look.  It is preferred by some because it has a less formal, softer appearance than highly polished stone.

Leathered

Leathered stone has a matte finish with a very subtle texture.  This highlights the grain and beauty of the stone.

Flamed

Flamed stone has a much more aggressive texture than leathered.  This makes a wonderful finish for fireplaces and floors.
