Ceramic vs. natural stone
Ceramic tile is molded from clay, pressed, and heated under extreme pressure. It is often made from white, red, and brown clay mixed with minerals. Porcelain tile is the same in this regard, except its makeup includes feldspar. This is a type of crystal that takes on a glossy, glass-like look.
Natural stone can be made of travertine, granite, marble, slate, limestone, quartzite, and so much more. Each stone type has unique properties, too. Some are porous and stain easily; others are extremely stain-resistant. Be sure to research the type of stone you're interested in before purchasing it.
