The stones inside are unpolished, while the ones outside are polished.

Reconstruction of Kaba by Quraish Prophet Muhammad participated in one of its reconstructions before he became a Prophet.
After a flash flood, the Kaba was damaged and its walls cracked. Prophet Muhammad helped with this reconstruction. Once the walls were erected, it was time to place the Black Stone, the Hajar ul Aswad on the eastern wall of the Kaba.
Arguments erupted about who would have the honor of putting the Black Stone in its place. That man was the Prophet.
The Makkans were ecstatic. He came to them and they asked him to decide on the matter. Prophet Muhammad proposed a solution that all agreed to-putting the Black Stone on a cloak, the elders of each of the clans held on to one edge of the cloak and carried the stone to its place.
The Prophet then picked up the stone and placed it on the wall of the Kaba. Since the tribe of Quraish did not have sufficient funds, this reconstruction did not include the entire foundation of the Kaba as built by Prophet Ibrahim. This is the first time the Kaba acquired the cubical shape it has now unlike the rectangle shape which it had earlier.
The portion of the Kaba left out is called Hateem now.
