Topic: tiles or marble

i wish to use tile or stone on the top of parapet to protect from water. Which is better. the parapet as you know will be exposed to heavy rainfall as well as sunlight. which is the cheaper and more durable? also, tiles are supposed to be waterproof and stone absorbs water. if stone, which stone (the cheap n best) Gupta sir kindly advise.
