About Soapstone

Soapstone is composed of several minerals including talc, chlorite, dolomite and magnetite, giving it a soft feeling to the touch. It has a unique soft color with light flowing veins. When cut, soapstone will oxidize from a light color to a darker one.

Soapstone is a relatively soft, non-porous stone that is susceptible to scratching.  As with marble, soapstone is valued for its “old world” look and is suitable in this context for kitchens, baths, bars and fireplace surrounds.
