Many granites contain pits and fissures that are natural characteristics of the stone. Some granite colors exhibit these characteristics more than others, and the lighting of the room can make these marks more or less visible.
There are a few colors that some customers just can't handle because the veining and surface fissures look like scratches and cracks to them. The Marron Cohiba (aka Antique Brown) pictured below is one of those colors.
On the other hand Absolute Black granite (pictured below) looks and feels pretty darn close to perfectly smooth.
