Soapstone is made up of mineral deposits created by nature and quarried from the earth. The main mineral components in soapstone include talc, chlorite, dolomite and magnesite, giving a warm, soft feeling to the touch. Soapstone has a unique soft color with light flowing veins. When cut, it oxidizes from light grey to dark charcoal in color. Soapstone is non-porous, however we recommend oiling soapstone to help the stone darken evenly. Soapstone never stains because it is non-porous. This also makes it the ideal kitchen surface — cleanups are an absolute breeze. Soapstone also has attractive veining and other naturally created patterns, which are one-of-a-kind decorative elements. When it is exposed to high temperatures, its rich colors can actually deepen over time. Soapstone will not harbor bacteria. As the densest natural stone counter top, soapstone is the safest stone counter top for your family. It is the ONLY natural stone counter top that does not require a chemical sealer. Used even in high-traffic areas, soapstone flooring will last forever, and yet it is soft enough to shape using simple woodworkers tools.
