What Is Pietra Cardosa ?

Pietra Del Cardoso, also known as Pietra Cardosa, is sometimes confused with a soapstone. Pietra Cardosa is not a soapstone, it actually is a Sandstone. Many clients ask for Pietra del Cardoso looking to achieve a similar look of the soapstone. We are happy to offer clients this natural stone in addition to the soapstone varieties we carry.

Pietra del Cardoso is a deep-blue dark grey sandstone. It is a metamorphic rock.  Due to its mineral composition, the Pietra del Cardoso has a notable compactness and toughness. It has great physic-mechanic resistance to attrition, electric power as well as great resistance to the damaging action of atmospheric elements. Pietra Cardosa, however, is not as dense as soapstone, therefore needs to be properly sealed to protect it against stains.
