What is a Soapstone Countertop?

Soapstone CountertopSoapstone counter-tops are counters constructed of a metamorphic rock that is known as soapstone. Soapstone contains a high amount of talc, which makes it a bit softer than other stones used for counter-tops.

Soapstone counter-tops are counters that are made of soapstone. Soapstone is a natural rock that is formed through the metamorphic process. It has a high amount of talc, which gives it a texture that is similar to soap. Soapstone counter-tops are popular because of the veins of color that run through the stone, and most varieties are dark green or charcoal grey. The rock deepens in color over time, and it is impervious to stains and spills. However, a soapstone counter-top may scratch more easily than granite or marble surfaces. Soapstone counter-tops must also be treated with mineral oil on a regular basis to maintain the stone’s appearance. They do not require any other maintenance, which makes them very popular with homeowners.
