Help on finishes for granite bench tops please

tracycaseOctober 18, 2013
Have found stunning piece of granite for kitchen bench / island tops. However, it has "brushed" finish - ie feels like natural stone, not a honed/ polished look. Would this be suitable in a kitchen, or a nightmare to clean?

Doesn't sound like it's counter material. Nightmare to clean. Needs honed or polished.

How porous is it? Is it a "leather" finish? if so, it can be sealed smooth, with a rustic appeal. (I have polished granite in kitchen, Leather finish on hearth of fireplace... beautiful!
