Soapstone has a natural earthy beauty that is unique unto itself. While is it often described as a “soft stone”, it is still very much a stone that is durable and suitable for counter-tops. Soapstone has two very desirable properties as a counter-top. Number one, it is non-porous therefore it can not stain. Number two, it is extremely heat resistant and needs no trivet or protection from hot items coming out of the oven.
