We pride ourselves in carrying the largest inventory of soapstone and soapstone slabs in California. Below, you will notice an oiled and un-oiled version of each soapstone slab we have available. Freshly honed, soapstone starts out grey in color. Over time, soapstone will age and darken. You can speed up this aging process by oiling your soapstone slab or countertop. When oiled, the veining structure becomes more prominent, the background turns dark charcoal or black, and it also helps to blend the look of your scratching. This natural stone may be soft to touch or feel like “soap,” but it is durable in terms of staining, etching, and heat. You also don’t have to worry about using certain types of chemicals on your soapstone as true soapstone is chemically inert.
Note: All of our soapstone slabs come in 3 cm thickness. Please contact us for pricing, sizing and availability.
