    Welcome to the forum. I used brick for the floor, so I don't have any first hand knowledge. "Polished stone" covers a lot of terrtory and various materials. I doubt that many are suitable for a WFO. Here are some discussions about the use of polished soapstone in particular.

      Soapstone has often been used in wood ovens for the floor , the general opinion is it gets too hot for a pizza oven. Generally any stone which has crystals in it, will perform poorly due to spalling, as most polished stone for kitchen tops has a large decorative crystal they tend to be unsuitable

        Polished granite and marble both fall to bits under high heat.
