Are you sitting down, and supported by big pillows so oyou don't fall on the floor ? Commonly wood baseboard in the 4-6 inch range (6" is unusual, usually 5-1/2" is a "standard" height) runs about $1-2/SF for any but the cheapest MDF or vinyl, plus installation - so commonly around $3/LF for pre-finished (without nail hole filling) to more like $5/LF for painted after the fact, on up to $5-10/LF for higher-end or fancier shapes stained or high-quality painted by the contractor.


Now for stone - probably in the order of $5/LF installation cost ASSUMING the drywall and flooring are flat and square, because it is not so tolerant of wavy surfaces - can easiluy run to $10 or so per LF if back-buttering or edge grinding it needed to clean up those surfaces enough to allow proper installation. So about as much for the installation as for normal complete baseboards in wood, very roughly. Then for the baseboard itself, common factory shapes of stone (also for most "cultured" or fake stones) like you can find samples of on Amazon or at Tile Shop or Home Depot about $10-20/LF (usually in 1-3 foot lengths, so a lot of joints), and more like $20-30/LF for somewhat fancier stone including highter-end fake stone or 3-5' strips, $30-50/LF for higher end or more exotic stones, and I have seen $50-100/LF for custom shapes or 6-8 foot lengths (which are a custom order item and normally minimum 1 inch thick, not 1/2-3/4").
