Soapstone is a natural quarried stone. It’s a metamorphic rock that got its name from the soft, or soapy, feel
of its surface, which is thanks to the presence of talc in the stone.
– Soapstone is available in a range of shades on a sliding gray scale, predominantly with blue or green undertones. Each slab is unique and varies in look and size from quarry to quarry. Quartz fleck and veining patterns cause the widest variation in soapstone, some slabs have large, but
few veins; others have dense veining. It will also darken naturally over time or with additions
of mineral oils.
