How can I Polish my Marble Tile to get a good Shine?

QUESTION

i have fixed 4" black marble on the corners of the room but unable to get shine of that marble after polishing. how to get shine of those pieces.

ANSWER

ANSWER - Assuming when you say marble that it is a true calcium carbonate marble you can buy kits with diamond pads and a powder compound with water to re-polish a marble that has scratches and stains.  Marbles are much more sensitive to scratching and to etching from acidic substances, and require re-polishing from time to time.

If you have a granite or quartzite then you need to use just the diamond pads with water.  There are a series of diamond pads that you use in sequence from very abrasive to lightly abrasive like sand paper.

There are professional stone restoration companies who specialize in restoring stone floors.

    I just moved into a house that is 18 years old. The master bathroom vanity. countertop appears to be marble, and has stains, rings (from glasses/cups) and is dull in the “high-traffic” areas. How do I determine if it’s REAL calcium carbonate marble, or something else? Is there a way I can do a test, or do I need to hire a stone expert?

      Marble is a calcium carbonate material that is chemical sensitive that some normal household products will cause it to etch that causes discoloration.
      The beauty of natural stone is that it normally can be refinished and polished to be like new. You should hire an experienced professional stone restoration company to evaluate it and determine how best to repair the undesirable stone conditions.
