Alright, CBD, you are just WRONG!
If the countertops are marble.. vinegar will harm them. Marble is alkaline and vinegar is acidic. the two react together and vinegar will etch the surface of marble.
Green stone can be serpentine and serpentine is not affected by acid, nor is granite.
The dull finish that you see sometimes is probably from residual soap/grease from wiping your counters with a dishcloth.
The best thing that you can do is to dry off your counter with a clean towel after wiping them with a cleaning solution made up from 2 ounces of Murphy's oil soap in 16 ounces of water. Use this to clean, then rinse with water and dry the tops.
There are special spray cleaners that are formulated for stone that are spray-on, wipe-off. You can find them at stone fabricators, tile shops or Lowe's/Home Depot. They're faster and easier to use than the Murphy's solution, but also more expensive.
