Soapstone is a super durable countertop option for your indoor or outdoor kitchen. It’s naturally antibacterial, will not burn or stain and requires very little maintenance. Acids, such as tomato’s or vinegars etc., will not etch soapstone. However soapstone tends to be for the home owner who embraces the lived in look. Overtime you may see some nicks, scratches, or dents. Fear not as the scratches can be removed with light sanding and may even disappear with a little mineral oil and/or this enhancer:


Soapstone, which is a steatite(as opposed to a granite), is a metamorphic rock made up of mineral deposits created by nature and quarried from the earth. You can find soapstone quarries right here in the USA. Soapstone is made up of several main mineral components such as talc, cholorite, dolomite and magnesite. Depending on it’s exact composition it comes in varying degrees of hardness. When it is cut it oxidizes from a light grey to a dark charcoal in color. Not all soapstone looks exactly alike. Some may have a bluish green hue, more or less veining, or various markings that add to the character of the stone. But for the most part, soapstone is typically found in shades of grey with veining. Adding mineral oil or better yet, GMS Soapstone Enhancer makes the soapstone color and subtle flowing veins darker and more prominent. Watch this educational video from one of our soapstone suppliers located in Vermont to discover the benefits of using soapstone enhancer verses a mineral oil…..
