Welcome to our Soapstone Slab Gallery. We now carry Soapstone Slabs. The rock steatite (also called soapstone) is the material we use for our soapstone countertops, sinks, masonry heaters, flooring, and many other architectural applications. Steatite is composed of several minerals, but the most abundant is talc. Steatite, because of its additives, is harder than talc, and hence suitable for the applications cited above. Soapstone (steatite) in its initial state only comes in shades of gray.
This naturally quarried stone is softer than most other naturally occuring minerals. Although soft, soapstone is a very dense (non-porous) stone; more so than marble, slate, limestone and even granite. Since soapstone is impenetrable, it will not stain, no liquid will permeate its surface. Other stones, including granite, have a propensity to soil; this is why soapstone (steatite) is widely used in chemistry lab countertops and acid rooms.
If you have any questions about any of our materials, please do not hesitate to contact us at 706-213-1255. If you are unsure of the color or structure of the granite slab or any of the other materials, we will be glad to send you additional photos. We can send actual samples to the geographical areas that we serve; this area includes Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee.
Our normal delivery schedules do not include other areas in the United States, so if you find material on our site; please discuss this with your granite countertop fabricator. Samples can be sent to areas other than GA, SC, NC and TN, but shipping charges will apply.
