Does stone need to be acclimated to the room it will be installed in?

RE: acclimate stone?
No, it is not necessary. Stone does not respond to atmospheric conditions such as humidity the way other types of flooring do. For instance, it does not expand and contract the way wood flooring does.

You are welcome. I have been installing tile and stone for most of my life. Roughly 22 years of installing.
