e 13606 USA: We are trying to decide on a durable and maintenance-free (or low maintenance) countertop for our new home (we cook a lot). The stone on the floor is a Summer Wheat slate and the cabinetry is a light cherry. I know that granite is very durable, but we really hate the speckled and glossy look. We want something modern and uniform, that does not have much movement (veining, spots, variation, etc.) in it. The options that we are considering are the following:
Soapstone (our first choice) 
Absolute black honed granite (although after reading your response, I think we'll pass on this one) 
Black Zimbabwe (honed) 
Pietra Serena (honed) 
Pietra Bedonia (honed) 
Pietra Griglia (honed)
We are also open to using a honed slate. looking for ideas and quotes. July 15, Contact

e 13544 USA: I want Soapstone. I am an individual looking for a personal piece cut to a 50" circle, 1 1/4" thick. July 12, Contact 

e 13335 USA: I am considering one of six marbles for my floors, including the kitchen and a sunroom. The marble will be honed and, unbelievably un-American as this is, I really like the battered marble look that I saw in shabby youth hostels in 100+-year-old buildings across Europe. 
A bit of dirt worked in gives character, as do some scratches. To make sure I can live with it, I'm going to buy a few pieces locally and toss 'em on the kitchen floor and leave them there for six months. (My countertops  I want to do in soapstone, so I'm not crazy--that stuff was amazing in the chem lab! I will also be using tile in the shower.) I doubt I'll have a problem, though, even with two dogs since I'm not expecting 
What I want is grey (or blue-grey, NOT brown or yellow-grey) veining on white marble--not too "directional" but a bit swirly. I want low iron because I absolutely don't want it to yellow. And it needs to be very, very much on the cheaper end of the scale! I'm open to more suggestions, but the ones I'm considering now are:
I know these are all metamorphic and not sedimentary (limestones), but what are their hardness and ferric contents? Do you know of better marbles that don't cost a bunch? Actually, I'm open to any stone that 
has a classic "marble" look. June 28, Contact

e 13112 USA: We live in a historic farmhouse in upstate New York (near the New England border). It is simple, yet elegant. We do a lot of cooking and we're very messy and don't always clean up spills and coffee drips and cooking messes right away. Right now we have a Formica countertop. It's old (20 years) and in bad shape. We need to replace it and would like to use granite or another stone rather than using any man-made products in our historic house. 
For historic reasons, I would like to use something quarried relatively locally (New England granite - preferably - or New York state granite or, at the very least, something quarried in the U.S.). I am looking for something with ease of maintenance, a more "formal" look than soapstone (especially since my husband doesn't like the look with our slate-blue cabinetry), and a stone that's not porous. 
I really like the local salt-and-pepper type granites, but I'm afraid the white background will show stains. June 15, Contact
