The unique combination of talc, mica, quartz, and other compounds give soapstone a smooth, “soapy” feel to the touch — which gives soapstone its name. Soapstone is revered for its heat and acid resistance, making it a great option for bathroom and kitchen countertops, as well as other uses.
Often mischaracterized as a soft stone, soapstone is a premier kitchen and bath surface choice because of its durability and long-wearing life. In fact, many people who have fallen in love with the charm of this material remember a soapstone sink from their Grandmother’s farmhouse or soapstone countertops in their university science lab — a common memory because those surfaces are made with a material that stands the test of time. However, keep in mind that there are different types of soapstone with varying degrees of hardness. The talc substance used for artistic carvings is softer than the substance used for soapstone countertops, so if you’re looking for kitchen or bathroom surfaces, start by connecting with our soapstone team.
