But very soft I would imagine.
One of the advantages of granite is that it is very hard, making it pretty much scratch proof and long lasting. I'm thinking of going with granite when I re-do my galley. It's very cheap in Brazil (starting at USD100 per 10 sq. feet, installed).
That is why mentioned saratoga soapstone, it is specifically used in custom counter tops.
