Taking a Look at Soapstone

Jun 30th, 2015 | Soapstone

Soapstone in Littleton is a versatile and nonporous natural stone. It gets its name from a distinct physical characteristic—the surface of this stone is soapy to the touch due to its high talc content. Depending on the percentage of talc present in the stone, it can be soft enough to carve easily into a statue or hard enough to be the prep surface of a kitchen island.

When used as a countertop surface, it is a durable, low-maintenance, and beautiful product that can elevate your kitchen or bathroom’s overall aesthetic. Because it is nonporous, soapstone does not need to be sealed, and it does not stain like other natural stones do. It is an excellent conductor of heat, which allows it to resist a very high level of heat from searing hot cookware on its surface without succumbing to damage. Soapstone is also impervious to acidic solutions such as lemon juice or caustic cleaners, making it a favorite countertop surface in science laboratories.
