Although this may appear to be a concrete countertop, it's not. This is what soapstone looks like when it hasn't been treated with mineral oil.

Most of the soapstone we use around here actually comes from Brazil so you would have to check into whether there's an importer near to where you live. I would contact your local stone fabricator and see if they can look into it for you.
Best of luck!

I'm sorry I can't help, the window belonged to the client who had it for many years before incorporating it into this room.

Oh I am so sorry for that Lydia! it was a real small team but now Alberene Soapstone is part of the Polycor group and will be able to reply faster and better to your needs! Also, we have developped new line of products - tiles for instance- that are available on our web site and could be great to do bathrooms or flooring. Let me know if I can help you in any way! And thank you for your understanding... Veronica at veronica@alberenesoapstone.com

That's great to know. I'm not particularly happy with the soapstone I did use. And I have more projects down the road. I love the Alberene product and that it's American made.

Soapstone Countertop- will look darker when oiled. Oil is usually suggested. Material: Soapstone Origin: Soapstone is a natural stone, like granite, that is quarried. It's composed mostly of mineral talc, which makes it quite soft, but soapstone used for countertops typically has higher percentages of quartz in it, which makes it harder and more suitable as a kitchen surface. Pros: Beautiful natural grey color, smooth matte feel, resistant to etching from acids, scratches can be sanded or oiled away; great surface for making pastries. Cons: Requires maintenance; not as heat resistant as granite; not impervious to dents and scratches; regular oiling and buffing recommended; the color darkens with age (which may be a pro for some). Installation: DIY-friendly Price range: $75-150/foot This is rather expensive.
