Remember your black desk in Chemistry class? It was likely made of soapstone, a natural stone with an ultra-low absorbency rate. It can be found in a variety of colors such a white, black, and charcoal, making it suitable for many design applications. The honed, non-polished, surface can be left as is, or oiled periodically to deepen the color and veining, depending on the desired look. We love the versatility of this stone and are excited to see its use increasing in popularity!
