Durability: Practically indestructible, Soapstone is naturally antibacterial, will not burn or stain and requires very little maintenance. Acids and alkalis will not etch soapstone as they will other stones. Soapstone has been a part of American homes since the early 1800’s; many homes today still contain working soapstone sinks and wood stoves built over 100 years ago.

What is Soapstone? Soapstone (steatite) is a naturally occurring metamorphic rock 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. When cut, it oxidizes from light grey to dark charcoal in color. A light coat of food safe Mineral Oil or Soapstone Enhancer makes its color and subtle flowing veins even more dramatic.
