Soapstone

A traditional use of Soap Stone was the laboratory table top in chemistry labs. That application alone should serve as a great testimonial to the chemical resistance of the materials.

 

Being of the softer varieties of dimension stone types, Soap Stone is not known for particularly high abrasion or scratch resistance. Soapstone is highly heat resistant, and has been used in fireplace surrounds frequently to take advantage of this property.
