A metamorphic rock that consists primarily of talc with varying amounts of other minerals such as micas, chlorite, amphiboles, pyroxenes, and carbonates. It is a soft, dense, heat- resistant rock that has a high specific heat capacity. Soapstone does not stain and are not harmed by hot pots, citrus, wine, acids or chemicals. Soapstone is typically gray, bluish, green, or brown in color, often variegated
Soapstone is great option for kitchen counter top, fireplaces, outdoors and bathrooms.
Cleaning your soapstone tops can be done with any of the common household cleaners, as water and soap. Soapstone is a soft rock, and it is easily scratched in countertop use. However, a gentle sanding and treatment with mineral oil will easily remove shallow scratches.
The only maintenance recommended, not required, is the mineral oil treatment to enhance the natural darkening process the stone goes through and to ensure the soapstone darkens evenly. Mineral oil is not recommended to protect the soapstone, it does not need protection since it is naturally non- porous
