    Soapstone

    Soapstone is a massive talc that causes it to have a "soapy" feel. It is a highly heat resistant material that is often used for kitchen countertops. Because it is a softer stone, it scratches easily but with a little steel wool the scratches come right out. Soapstone is available in slab form and is limited in color options, most ranging from blue to gray. Unlike any other natural stone, soapstone has to be mineral oiled to seal the pores. This would have to be done regularly to protect from stains.
