Soapstone Materials We Offer

Soapstone is talc based, which means it is very soft. The stone scratches easily; however, the scratches can be sanded out. Soapstone is not chemically sensitive and radiates heat; it will not etch, stain, or burn. Although soapstone is soft, it is very dense, making it ideal for soapstone countertops if you're not afraid of a little character, as it will scratch. Soapstone also requires no sealing, but oiling is recommended to enhance color and keep it from drying out. You can also achieve a darker tone with oiling, depending on the soapstone slab chosen. Common Uses: Counter tops, fireplaces, bar tops, kitchens
