Virginia Soapstone

We are proud to offer soapstone. Soapstone is quarried like granite and marble. It can range in age from 300 to 400 million years old, depending on its source.. The talc present in soapstone makes it soft to the touch, giving it the smooth feeling of rubbing a piece of dry soap. Thus the name was derived – “Soap” Stone.

But don’t be deceived — soapstone can be as hard as granite, and is actually less absorbent than most natural stone. Even after hundreds of years, a soapstone countertop can be easily sanded and polished to its original state!
