The nature of soapstone is a darker natural stone and comes in shades of grayish to green to blues, and charcoal gray. Random markings include white veining, shades of green, amber or beige in the shape of veins or other formations. This counter top here is a dark charcoal gray with white veining.

Thank you! Is there a specific name for the material, i.e. "charcoal grey from Brazil", or any other indicator that would help me communicate a request for this color to a fabricator?

Can you please tell me what material the countertop in the foreground is? Slate? - I think I want to have slate countertops in my kitchen. Any pros and cons you could share with me? Thanks!

Crisp Architects
The counter top material is soapstone, however to your question about slate, a pro would be it is relatively dense, thus resistant to stains and acids like vinegar. It is very easy to maintain and is also pretty heat resistant. A great thing is that it is cheap to have installed and is available at competitive prices. The drawbacks of slate would be that it has a fairly dull finish. If you like the high gloss reflective look, slate is not the way to go since it does not present any type of shine. Another of the practical disadvantages of using slate is that it can scratch easily through general use and wear and tear.
