Weird deposits on granite counter - how to remove and prevent

I bought a place in a building built in 2007 that has granite counters. The previous owner apparently was not sealing them at all. I managed to clean and seal the kitchen one on Saturday, but there are a lot of hard white deposits that look like minerals from hard water around the bathroom sink that I can't remove. Help?

What do I cover granite countertops with since I'm renting?

I need the equivalent of plastic couch covers or tinfoiling your stove for counters. I'd like to use the counters with the covers on. Appearance is unimportant. Usability of the counters is. [more inside]

Find me smooth heavy things

Since childhood I've had an obsessive need to have heavy objects in my possession. I have been searching for a smooth granite gargoyle with not much luck. It must be granite and polished smooth. I would like it to be on the heavier side, at least 15-20 lbs. [more inside]

Backsplash tile to complement granite counters and wood cabinets.

Need help deciding on tile for our new kitchen backsplash! We recently moved into a renovated house, and it already has these granite countertops. I'm not a huge fan of the color or strong veining, but they're new and we don't have the money to replace them. Our cabinets are currently dark brown, though we might paint them a light grey or white in the next year or so. What kind of tile or marble should we use on our backsplash? Or should we just paint it another color with somewhat washable paint? We cook lots and there are already quite a few marks above the stove and around the sink. [more inside]
