Soapstone Colors

Every week, clients asked what color is Soapstone? Like most natural stones, each piece of Soapstone varies in colors, movements and veining - depending on where it comes from. Soapstone is a metamorphic rock composed of compressed talc, magnesite, dolomite and other minerals.


Soapstone has a more limited color palate as opposed to Granite, which actually makes selecting your countertop much easier because there are not as many choices. Soapstone varies in the Gray, Black and Dark Green hue colors. Some are darker or lighter, have more movement or veining than others. Freshly-quarried soapstone slabs come in these hue colors, but over time they will darken or deepen in shade once they are exposed to oxygen, mineral oil or dry wax.
