yes, it's a soft stone. it stains easily as well. I'd go with a quartz like Caesarstone.

You have to be vigilant about sealing up front many coats until the stone will not absorb any more sealer. You also have to reseal every year or so depending on usage.

You have to love the idea of "patina" because keeping it perfect like new is not realistic.

Marble is porous & will stain & etch. Any acids will damage the tops. ( lemon, lime, tomato sauce, coffee, oj, coke etc ) If marble to be used in Kitchen use HONED... its forgiving to the etching. Sealers have come a long way in "helping" with the staining. If you like the look of marble but not the maint. look into a quartzite called SUPER WHITE. umistone.com carries it.

I have it in my kitchen, and have two toddlers. Unfortunately it scratches fairly easily, but I haven't had a problem with stains, as long as you wipe up immediately. Watch out for oils- they will sink in quickly.
