Education on marble

10 years ago

I love marble. I can't get myself away from it regardless of what I read. I know I am someone who can live with patina. I want a traditional kitchen. My taste is a matte lived in look not shiny or formal. I am thinking of soapstone for perimeter counters. I have a sample and the scratches haven't concerned me. However a white marble that stains does make me nervous especially with small kids. I am thinking of a white marble island.
I have heard of a new type is sealer that is a bit expensive but is a huge improvement against stains any truth to this?
Are different marbles more or less likely to stain?
If tomatoe sauce, wine etc is left on counter for a couple of hours does it stain right away?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
