Steatite

Steatite, also known as Soapstone, is a type of metamorphic rock largely composed of the mineral talc.  This beautiful stone aesthetic has dramatic veining, perfect for large open floor plans.  

Creative Features:

  • Six Sizes | 3″x12″ up to 30″x60″
  • Three Finish | Honed, Natural, Textured
  • Porcelain
  • Made in Italy

Steatite was featured in Erin’s Picks.

The dimensional textures of the collection mimic traditional hand-carving techniques of softer Soapstone, in a contemporary aesthetic.

Steatite is considered “LEED-friendly” because they have Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), Health Product Declarations® (HPDs), and contain recycled content.  Each of these components can contribute to credit points in accordance with the LEED V4 rating system.
