Designed for cutting metal and stone, the blades or "cutting discs" vary according to the material. A thinner disc should be used on marble rather than on a paving slab. Angle grinders can be used for cutting and also for grinding (such as smoothing rough edges on a heavyweight surfaces like masonry).
