Soapstone Counters

Soapstone can be used to create soapstone countertops, soapstone sinks, tile floors, back-splash and is frequently the material of choice for wood stoves, fireplaces and hearths as it has amazing properties for heat retention. The perfect accompaniment to soapstone counters are soapstone sinks.

Soapstone is easy to care for and its' beauty is timeless. Stone Masters owners are beyond passionate (almost obsessed) with soapstone. There are only one or two operating quarries around the world not stocked here and if we don't stock it you don't want it.

Stone Masters has more variety of soapstone than any soapstone company in the region. We import directly from Brazil, Italy and India. There is no such thing as exclusive in the stone industry. We stock the stone that others claim they have with exclusivity. We call it something else, come see for your self, compare and save. We have very hard soapstones and we have softer soapstones and stones that are inbetween. Different stone types perform and look better in different applications than others. we even have granites that look and feel like soapstone.

The most common questions and concerns about soapstone are: How to care for soapstone, how to oil soapstone and how to remove scratches from soapstone. The articles and videos are designed to answer your questions, but feel free to call or come in for a demonstration.

If you come in, you can see, touch actual slabs. We typically have 12-15 different unique species of soap stone to select from. Take home a sample and allow us to prepare a 1/2 oiled and 1/2 raw sample of soapstone in the species you prefer before you make your final decision about soapstone countertops.

Customers are always asking about the pros and cons of soapstone as compared to granite and marble counters. Visually the thing that jumps out at you initially is that granite kitchen counters are shiny and more colorful. Once you get past the visuals there are significant differences. Both marble and granite kitchen tops are porous while soapstone is not porous at all. You cannot stain soapstone so that is a big plus for soapstone. While it is true that soapstone is more prone to scratching as compared to granite surface countertops it is also much easier to repair a scratch by yourself in about 1 minute with nothing more than sandpaper and mineral oil.

Soapstone counters have a long and rich history in the Philadelphia region. There is a string of soapstone deposits that starts in Conschocken and runs all the way out to Reading Pa. In the early Philadelphia Colonial days settlers used what materials were nearby and readily available. Today these are not active or of high quality deposits but it is interesting nonetheless that there are soapstone deposits in and around the Philadelphia region.

What to look for when selecting slabs/fabricator

Stone Types

Granite is hard and dense. As such, it is naturally scratch, etch and stain resistant. That makes it suitable for use in kitchens, bathrooms, wet and dry locations. Granite is stable and not overly sensitive to heat and that makes it suitable for fireplace applications.

Marble is soft and vulnerable to scratching, staining and etching and is most suitable for use in bathrooms. It can be used in kitchens but extra care should be taken to maintain its appearance.

Quartz is manmade from natural minerals including quartz plus resins and pigments. It is very hard and both stain, etch and scratch resistant. It is vulnerable to heat damage as is not recommend for fireplace applications

Quartzite is a natural stone that is very hard and therefore scratch and stain resistant. It can be used anywhere granite is used.

Soapstone is softer than marble and can scratch easily, but can also be sanded and repaired with no special tools or skills. Soapstone is very heavy and dense and completely non-porous therefore very stain resistant and handles heat like no other stone so it is suitable in kitchens, baths, fireplace and both wet and dry locations.

Slate is harder than marble and soapstone and almost non-porous but NOT recommended for wet locations as water can get between the layers and cause separation and warpage.

Chipping, All stones can and will chip if impacted hard enough. The really hard stones are actually more prone to chipping as the material is so hard it is brittle and may chip. Chipping is most evident around a sink.

Competitors will claim that certain stones are quartzites to aid them in sales. The stones are actually marble or dolomite, pretending their quartzite makes it easier for them to sell. While they are beautiful, they are very vulnerable to etching. Test a sample for yourself using a few drops of lemon juice. If the surface etches........You know it contains calcite and is not going to perform like a granite or quartzite at all.
