Is there a way to restore the lustre, or shine to my granite table?

Bought a ''granite'' topped kitchen table, when we got it set up, extremely heavy...I noticed that it was indeed NOT SOLID granite, rather pieces glued together.
Well, it's pitted like mad, etched like mad, and looks like crap.
Is there anything, including epoxy, I can put on it safely, to make it look nice again??
I had called the place we bought it from and she argued with me about it being solid granite, well it's NOT.
I hope others don't fall for this claim, I'm still fuming and it's been 6 years!!!
Thanks to anyone who can help, I'm about to dump high gloss floor sealer on it!

    Famowood is the best epox. That is what I would do.

    go for the claim....take her to small claims court...I would not do one thing ...in fact bring it back and demand your money....

      Janet, if I had the time I would have. It's been too long, and I need my strength for useful things like living and grandkids!!
      When I called her and she just wouldn't have any of it, I thought, well I was the one who got hornswoggled, I knew real granite didn't have little square looking patterns to it. I even told her that, and there's a covering on the bottom, kind of like a batting? I'm guessing to cover the glue marks. LOL..thanks!

    Bless your heart, Grammyzoo2. Clean the granite the best you can, in all the little grooves and pocks. Then epoxy is probably your best bet. Make sure any sealer including epoxy is “food grade”, which should be on the label. If it’s safe for eating on, then what have you got to lose? If the store doesn’t want your repeat business, you just have to deal with it. Best wishes, and how about photographing and Posting on Hometalk for others with the same problem? ☺️

    I would go for a commercial marble cleaner on this one
