The Timeless Soapstone. Soapstone has been a favorite for centuries. Because of Soapstone’s unique properties it has been used for counter tops longer than any other stone. It is easy to care for, and clean up after. This stone is a sturdy surface that is almost impossible to hurt. Soapstone has a beautiful matte black or matte green coloration, with stunning marble veins or no veins at all. This natural stone is very dense. It is a non-porous stone that is naturally sealed. Naturally anti-bacterial, as it will not absorb moisture. It is also mold and mildew resistant. Soapstone is chemically inert, making cleaning a snap. Impervious to staining, wine, vinegar, and lemon juice will not harm this stone. Soapstone can take heat temperatures anywhere from 2000 to 3000 degrees of heat, so it will never be a worry to place anything hot straight from the oven on to the counters.
