This is a new Grey soapstone that we just started brining in. It has very limited material at the quarry in Brazil. So get it while you can! This variety lends a warm cozy feeling when installed. When not oiled, it has a blue gray background with subtle hints of sage green and thin creamy vanilla vein streaks. Its not the hardest, yet not the softest of soapstones. We would rate it about a 4 on the mineral hardness scale (mohs). Check out the slabs we currently have.
