Soapstone, is an extremely popular alternative to granite or marble. Many people are attracted to having soapstone as a countertop because of its soft feel. Soapstone comes in colors of blue, green and gray, and if mineral oil is applied consistently, it will bring out the color making it look older and much more elegant. Soapstone won't etch from acids, and stains can be rubbed out easily. However, one of the "cons" to soapstone is that it can easily scratch. Fortunately, because it is so soft, scratches can be sanded out fairly easily.
Soapstone is a naturally occurring metamorphic rock made up of mineral deposits created by nature and quarried from the earth. The main mineral components in soapstone include talc, chlorite, dolomite and magnetite, giving a warm, soft feeling to the touch.
Soapstone is stain resistant because it does not absorb food or liquid. Any residue sits on top of the stone and is cleaned away with simple soap and water. Also, unlike granite and marble, soapstone typically does not need to be sealed.
