polished vs honed and light vs dark granite/quartzite

posted by: Peke on 04.26.2013 at 06:22 pm in Kitchens Forum

I am ready to choose a slab. I am not sure whether to go dark or light. The cabinets are stained a medium oak....double fruitwood.
Appliances are stainless. LED undercabinet lights.

So what are the pros and cons of dark granite vs lighter quartzite?
Pros and cons of polished vs honed?

effects of led lights with diffusers? spotlights with polished?
Does etching show up more on light or dark, polished or honed?

...any thing else I need to ask?

I love the granites with blue in them: Volga Blue, Blue Pearl.
But I also love Sea Pearl which is a light colored quartzite.

So can you give me the good, the bad, and the ugly so I can make a decision?

thanks, Peke
