How long does it take for a stone to decompose?

We see stones and they appear to be the same throughout our life time. Mountains also appear to not significantly change. So do mountains and stones decompose? What is the life span of a stone? After it decomposes, what does it turn into?

So how long does it take for a mountain to form after it's being eroded by water
