Pros:
Both Granite and Marble are made of genuine natural stone which means each slab is unique and beautiful. Marble is famous for it veining, which has led to the term "marbling." Marble also ages beautifully. Granite and marble comes in a large variety of colors and the options and patterns are endless.


Cons:
Marble is porous and should have a quality searler to prevent staining. Because the minerals that compose marble are sensitive to certain chemical agents, it is important to wipe spills away quickly. Anything acidic or basic will leave an etch mark if left on the stone for too long. .

Which one has more heat resistant: Granite or Silestone? Explain?


Planning to refurbish your kitchen, Now-a-days, a wide range of choices for kitchen countertops are available in the market, which make you to choose the perfect one. In case if you are looking to select granite or Silestone for your kitchen worktops. Then, as per my knowledge both are popular choices, but he Granite is a very durable natural stone with a high aesthetic value. It is heat and scratch resistant but also porous and therefore possible to stain; it needs periodic maintenance. Where as the quartz used in countertops and flooring is a man-made combination of resins and crushed quartz. The resulting surface is non-porous, meaning it is more stain resistant than granite and requires less maintenance overall.
