honed dark green granite that looks like soapstone?
I saw honed dark green granite that looks alot to me like unoiled soapstone. I was told it is from Italy.I have not found any comments about it here and wonder if anyone is familiar with it? I let some butter and juice sit on it for 24 hours (along with a cup to try to create a ring). I did not put any sealer on it. I was able to easily wash it all off. There was the tiniest of glass ring showing, but I don't think anyone would be able to see it. It looked like it could just be a variation in the stone. I'm doing some more rigorous testing with it and will let you know the result tomorrow.
I have given up on soapstone because of the negative things I've read here and this seems like a decent alternative - maybe more organic feeling than engineerd quartz and softer than polished granite. Comments?
