What is Soapstone?

Soapstone is a naturally quarried metamorphic rock with a soft, or soapy, feel. Soapstone is beautiful, durable and naturally non-porous. Chemically inert, the stone is not harmed by lemon juice and other acids The experts at Marble & Granite Tech can help complete your home or commercial space with soapstone. The stone is available in a range of textures with gray shades, some with blue or green undertones. Since no two slabs are alike, soapstone offers a one-of-a-kind look.  Soapstone is ideal for environments that demand durability. Bacteria resistant and not impacted by cleaners that harm other natural stone surfaces, soapstone is often found in laboratories and food preparation areas. A dense rock, soapstone can withstand high heat without damage.

Soapstone Advantages

There are many reasons to choose a soapstone countertop, including:

  • Non-porous surface
  • Strong heat and water resistance properties
  • Resists bacteria
  • Typically clean soapstone with common household cleaners
  • Defends against citrus, acids and chemicals
