Is a limestone countertop really a disaster in the kitchen?

I am finalzing a kitchen renovation and have selected a limestone that I LOVE -- but I have been given some negative feedback about it's durability. One salesperson is trying to convince me to go with a caesarstone (synthetic quartz) - but others say it is bland and uniform. I love to cook and am not always the neatest it the kitchen. Will the limestone really stain? Or I have heard that it absorbs the stains over time which gives it more depth and texture. I have selected white cabinets and a white carrera marble subway tile - so the countetop will be making a big statement. I'd love some help!
