What are different kinds/types of stone finishes?

Polished – Grinding, sanding, and buffing produces a high gloss, mirror-like surface.

Honed – Grinding and sanding produces a smooth, yet not glossy finish. This is best for low maintenance, high traffic applications.

Leather – This finish gives the stone a suede look and feel. This texture is smooth and slip resistant.
