Each of our nationwide soapstone warehouses has been receiving gorgeous soapstone slabs from the Barroca quarry. Pictured is our most recent lot of Barroca™ Soapstone. This product is a traditional soapstone from the Baroque-inspired Mariana region of Brazil. The stone is a beautiful light gray color. After oil or wax treatment, it takes on a rich black hue with occasional white veining.
Utilizing two countertop materials such as soapstone and marble in kitchen remodels is one of the most popular trends. However, many homeowners are concerned with the porous nature of marble. A perfect alternative is Quartzite natural stone. Quartzite will give you the elegant and unique look of marble and is more durable.
After an Italian quarry recently marketed their white marble as soapstone, we have been receiving a lot of requests for the now-famed product. While their stone is beautiful, Steatite (soapstone) is only white when composed of pure talc (which is unsuitable for architectural applications).
