Indoor, random stone pointing

Hello, does anyone know of a product I can put onto stone to make it 'look shiny'?... I'm pointing an interior wall for a friend, as she'd like to keep it as a 'feature', (her choice!). However, as I generally point exterior walls, and am not an interior designer, I have no clue whatsoever what 'making it look shiny' means, but unfortunately I pretended I did. Any ideas?

Dear Sir,
Thank you for your speedy reply on how to make walls look shiny! I have managed to save the page you sent, and when my friend has decided which effect she would like, I will 'attempt' to order a catalogue.
Apologies for being completely computer illiterate, and can I contact you again if I need info about any other jobs? I don't know how this works.
All the pointing jobs I've had in the past were arranged by my (ex)husband, so, whereas my work is good, pragmatically I don't have a blinkin clue. I'm trying to support two children and do a degree; this is the only way I can think of to supplement my student loan.
yes all you have to do after you have cleaned all the stone, and pointed it, you need to give it a couple of coats of clear varnish, make sure its not cheap stuff

I slapped some polyurethane varnish on exposed brick work in my house and it looks great. PU type will add a slight yellow hint though.
