Like other natural stones such as granite, marble, or quartzite, soapstone is quarried from the earth. As we stated above, soapstone is used in sculpture and artwork as well as kitchen countertops and other interior stone surfaces. The big difference between the soapstone used in those applications is the amount of talc present in the stone.
Soapstone is nearly 100% resistant to any stains. In fact, scientific laboratories regularly choose soapstone because of its resistance to chemicals, general durability, and non-porous nature. This countertop material has scientifically-proven strength with a natural dark beauty.
