The Beauty of Soapstone…

will enhance your life with its natural and unexpected patterns. Its smooth, unique texture invites the hand, and its natural luster radiates a refined elegance to the eye beyond that of more conventional types of stone. As soapstone ages, its beauty deepens as it develops a rich natural patina with no maintenance. Unlike many attractive but impractical counter surfaces, soapstone enhances the functionality of your kitchen. Its cool smooth surface is ideal for all your kitchen tasks, including but not limited to a perfect surface for pastry making and a safe place to rest a hot dish. Soapstone is easily maintained using natural household cleaners that sustain a healthy lifestyle. Soapstone has long been a tradition in laboratories as it is impervious to acids, stains, and heat. It is the only non-porous stone, giving it the surface which marble and granite imitate with sealers. The stone may be darkened and shined with linseed oil, a natural, food grade oil.
