However a honed marble surface can be less resilient against preventing acid or oils spills from being absorbed by the stone. The reason is because to obtain a honed finish from marble the surface of the stone must be diamond sanded, this diamond sanding process causes the pores on the surface of the marble to slightly open. once this pore open up the surface becomes more vulnerable to etching and stains.
