Teresina Soapstone

Soapstone has a soft charcoal color with gray to light-gray veins. Over time, it oxidizes from light grey to dark charcoal in color. A protective coat of mineral oil makes its color even more dramatic.

Because of its mineral composition and the process by which it is formed, Soapstone is very dense, non-porous, and chemically inert. Nothing will stain or etch soapstone, and you do not have to apply artificial sealers to protect soapstone countertops. Other natural stones, such as granite or marble, will stain or etch even after applications of artificial sealers. Soapstone has been used for decades as chemistry lab tables, because it is inert and will not be harmed by acidic materials.

Soapstone is also a great conductor of heat and can withstand very high temperatures. You can set hot pots and pans directly on your Soapstone countertop surface, and not worry about the stone being damaged.
