Soapstone

Soapstone

Soapstone is an ideal kitchen countertop with a non-porous surface so it never stains. There are no pores to retain bacteria from food so clean ups are very easy. When soapstone is left untreated it has a cool blue-gray tone. Applying oil coats to the surface brings out a rich dark sheen. This stone usually comes in gray, blueish, green and brown.

Soapstone is a metamorphic rock which is composed primarily of talc.  Because of this, soapstone is a soft stone and can easily be scratched.  Many people tend to apply mineral oil to mask the scratches.  This also give an even, rich allure to the stone. However this stone has a very low absorption rate making it resistant to all types of chemicals and acids.  If you’ve ever been an a lab then you’ve probably seen this stone already. It has a soft texture yet it is very durable. It is soft enough to manipulate or shape with some of the simplest tools, and yet it is seems to last forever, often being used in high traffic areas.

Soapstone is versatile and can be used in antique remodels or modern stylish homes. It is as durable as it is timeless. To find out more about Soapstone or our other products, please call (501) 762-0254 or fill out the contact form on the contact us page.
