Soapstone, also called “steatite” is a metamorphic rock primarily composed of talc. This means it’s softer than many other minerals, but it’s very dense, almost twice as dense as marble, limestone, granite, and slate. This also makes soapstone slabs impermeable to staining, as liquid cannot penetrate the surface.
Pebbles Stone Slabs carries an array of soapstone slabs for sale in Denver that are an attractive, durable, and affordable stone, and commonly used by interior designers and stone fabricators as an alternative to materials like granite, marble, or quartz.
Soapstone slabs come in a lot of styles and attractive colors. It’s commonly used for kitchen countertops, and it’s also great for bathroom countertops, living room fireplaces/hearths, outdoor kitchens, bars, and a wide variety of other applications.
As mentioned, soapstone is incredibly dense, so it holds twice as much heat per pound compared to iron or steel. Hot pans and pots can be put directly on soapstone countertops without issues, so it’s great for kitchens. It holds up well to thermal stresses, which is why it’s great for fireplaces.
Soapstone is also less brittle than granite, so despite being softer, it’s less likely to crack unexpectedly from heat stress, weight, or impacts. One thing to note when considering soapstone countertops or accents in a soapstone kitchen is that it is completely non-porous and does not require sealing, and is not susceptible to stains from oil, wine, food, makeup, or any other such product or material.
