Marble is a crystalized limestone and therefore big machines (and skilled pros) can polish marble to a mirror-finish, which really brings out the depth of it's color and looks gorgeous.
However, marble polishing is only recommended for counter tops that are lightly used such as a powder bath, tabletop, pass bar or furniture piece, but NOT for kitchen countertops or the wet bar.
Why? . . .
Marble is made of calcium carbonate, which is reactive with acids (fruit juice, soda, coffee, alcohol, salad dressing, etc.) and will "etch" upon contact with acids.
Destroys the polish leaving a dull, light spot. You'll get these dull spots all over with marble countertops in the kitchen. Also, marble is softer and more prone to scratching than granite.
Polished marble is very stain resistant, but still not good for kitchens due to etching. Sealing does not prevent etching.
So if you love the look of marble and insist on installing marble counter tops in your kitchen, a honed finish is usually a better choice. And always use coasters, cutting boards and trivets to protect against spills and scratches.
Marble Care. You'll find more information about marble care and how to avoid expensive marble restoration at the cleaning marble page. Also, it's worth noting that traditionally marble is left to age naturally letting friends and family rub "life" into the stone--stains and all.
Over the years marble stains and etching may occur gradually changing the color and tone to reflect the essential character of your home. This is especially true of marble tile floors, which become more beautiful with age and use.
It's hard to resist the quintessential beauty and the feelings of warm opulence that marble conveys to any room. Marble counter tops and marble flooring will add immeasurable value and years of pleasure to your home.
Also, consider using this natural stone for marble bathroom vanities, tile flooring, a marble fireplace, tub decks and marble shower surrounds.

Marble is one of the most beautiful materials used today to make countertops, tabletops, fireplace mantles and floors. With a wide variety of colors, sizes and shapes of marble tile available it is possible to match any decor and add classic, timeless beauty to any room in your home.
Marble is used more frequently in bathrooms than kitchens and is often used on the walls, floors, vanities or shelves. The first and most important step in caring for your marble is to be sure that it is sealed with a high quality sealer specifically designed for marble. This will help to prevent some stains and will make cleaning your marble a bit easier and more effective.
Marble can be scratched by grit so it is important not to use an abrasive cleaner when cleaning your granite. Instead, try using liquid dish soap and warm water. Rinse the soapy water and then dry the marble with a soft towel. Acidic cleaners are a definite no-no with marble since they can eat into the marble and cause damage. This includes even mild acids like vinegar or lemon juice, both of which can cause permanent damage to your marble.
If you have tougher stains on your marble that cannot be removed with dish soap and water, you can try using a marble polishing powder. These powders are available at most hardware and home improvement stores and come with complete instructions on how to use them to clean your marble.
If you have a particularly tough stain that won't come out with the soapy water or the polishing powder, your best bet would probably be to call a professional marble cleaner or restorer to tackle the job for you rather than risk further damaging your marble by trying something on your own
The best way to care for your marble is by using precautions to prevent stains and scratching before they happen. Because marble is porous and will absorb moisture, always be sure to immediately wipe up any spills. Use a high quality marble sealer, and reseal as needed to be sure that your marble remains protected and beautiful.
Marble is higher maintenance than many other natural stones, however, it has a beauty, elegance and class that can make the extra maintenance seem very worthwhile.
