Soapstone is extremely durable and versatile, yet it exudes warmth and softness to the touch. The unique combination has made it the current material of choice for a variety of applications. It opens the door to many design styles from traditional to modern. Naturally, soapstone is a soft gray-green color with light flowing veins. When oiled, soapstone darkens dramatically and the veins become more prominent. Soapstone is practically indestructible, and adds elegance and enduring value to any countertop project.
