Is this soapstone on the counters? Is there information of pros and cons of soapstone?

Thank you for reporting this. Undo
Soapstone is also mined in Schyler, VA. Alberene Soapstone Company started in 1888.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Ivon Street Studio added this to Kitchen Counters: Durable, Easy-Clean Soapstone
Sustainability: 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.More guides to choosing kitchen counters
