Soap Stone

Soap Stones are mainly made of a talc-schist mineral, which is at the same time hard and soft. It’s mainly used for kitchen countertops, however caution should be advised since you should find problems with scratching. In order to minimize these issues we only produce our slabs with honed finishing. Some customers like to apply oil at the countertops once installed so it brighten its colors as well as it keeps from scratching. Soap Stones absorbs heat. Many people like to install this material around fireplaces, so it expands the heat to the environment around it.
