With polished stones, the pores are sealed so that they will not get this ugly build up in the pores. They
also clean up much easier and are more sanitary because of the fact that the stones are polished.
Polished is better for hygiene and safety, they are easier to clean, provide fewer nooks for bacteria to
thrive in, and are less likely to "hook" or scrape your skin.
