I purchased one of those black composite granite sinks to undermount in the kitchen and I love it ! The granite in my kitchen is quite busy so a dark sink was the perfect addition. Doesn't show much dirt, easy to clean and with the color being dark, it isn't very noticeable.

This sink is Soapstone. I don't really have experience with granite sinks, so I can't comment on that.

Over time, the soapstone will darken to a deep charcoal. Slabs may contain pronounced veining, which is produced by quartz in the stone.Cost: $80 to $100 per square foot, installed

I like soapstone. I like that the sink can be the same material as the counters.The color can be a stone grey or with oiling, black.. It's fairly indestructible. It looks great in an old or antique house and equally fine with a modern or industrial space. I also love the clean lines. My only negative comment would be the weight...heavy!

Soapstone gets green kudos for being a material that will last for generations. However, the mining of soapstone is ecologically harmful. And though soapstone was once mined domestically in Vermont and Appalachia, most countertop material is now mined in Brazil, resulting in significant transportation-related energy expenditure.
