Soapstone is a naturally occurring metamorphic rock, composed primarily of the mineral talc. It forms in the subduction zones of continental plates, where incredible amounts of heat and pressure result in various crystallization processes. Like other types of natural stone, soapstone has seen extensive architectural application, with the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio being perhaps the most famous example.
While soapstone doesn’t see as much use as other materials, it is undeservedly neglected given that it brings several unique advantages to the table. See below for a breakdown of upsides and downsides. The next time you’re picking a material for your kitchen countertop, be sure to include soapstone in your considerations.
