Soapstone is also known as steatite. This metamorphic rock is largely composed of mineral talc and bears some unique qualities. The talc contents of the stone does not let acids etch inside. This makes its usage ideal for kitchen countertops and fireplace hearths. The stone further, is able to extract heat from fireplace or stove and radiates it for hours, even if the source is turned off. Owing to its durability and non-porous nature, the stone is regularly chosen for scientific laboratories. It is not affected by chemicals, acid or heat.
