When it comes to any soapstone countertops, no 2 slabs are ever the same. The one that you have decorating your kitchen will never be duplicated in any other home. Your countertop will become a personal treasure and will grow on you as it ages. Soapstone won’t get damaged from heat and doesn’t stain. It is non-porous, so it will never absorb liquids. This type of stone is so dense that no type of sealant is required at all. It is all natural, completely recyclable and bacteria resistant.
