What is Soapstone 

Soapstone is a natural stone, primarily composed of the high talc content. Thats the reason why soapstone has softness as its distinctive character.

Known for its rich, dark hues, soapstone is a non-porous material, making it highly resistant to stains and bacterial growth.

Types of soapstone: Architectural Soapstone: This type of soapstone is used primarily in construction and home decor. Architectural soapstone is denser and harder.

Artistic Soapstone: This type of soapstone also known as “steatite stone” has a higher talc content, often over 75%, which makes it softer and easier to carve.


Different colors of Soapstone Gray Soapstone: This is perhaps the most common color of soapstone. It can range from light to dark gray and often has subtle veining.

Blue Soapstone: Less common than gray or green, blue soapstone is prized for its unique color.
