For the economically conscious homeowner, schist may seem like an attractive solution when replacing countertops. However, schist is actually quite a bit of risk due to its delicate nature. Schist is medium grade metamorphic rock, formed by the metamorphosis of mudstone / shale, or some types of igneous rock. It usually contains significant amounts of mica, which allow the rock to split into thin pieces.
However, with the advancement of stone processing technology, these generally fragile materials are now capable of being processed into slab material for countertop applications. The mica that is found in schist provides a natural sparkle not typically found in other stone countertop materials. Though delicate, schist is fairly hard and adequate for kitchen countertop applications.
Schist is also highly porous and should be sealed to prevent staining. In addition, because they are more fragile, schist requires a bit more care.
