The final natural stone commonly found in countertops is slate, which is quarried straight from the earth, cut into slabs. It is a surprisingly good material for countertops since it is relatively non-porous and resists stains well. Although most people think of slate as a dark gray or black stone, there are types that have shades of green or pink within them. Unlike soapstone, slate has some subtle veining, though less dramatically than marble. Slate countertops warrant consideration for homeowners looking for something unusual but subtle. There are surprisingly few downsides to slate countertops.
Although not as well known as granite or marble, soapstone has been used for countertops for many years. Another quarried stone, soapstone has a warm, milky appearance that allows it to complement other design features without overwhelming them. Soapstone is usually found in varying tones of whites and grays, and it lies in between granite and marble in terms of hardness—not as hard as granite, but less porous than marble. Soapstone is a somewhat rare material for countertops, making it a pricey option but one that some homeowners may enjoy for its uniqueness.
