SoapStone is Mother Nature's handiwork. Every stove is unique due to the nature of the stone. Stone patterns and color vary from unit to unit and truly are a work of art.
These units also can have enamel trim instead of the cast black. Some combinations can really pop!
SoapStone units work on the principle that stone releases heat slower than metal so over time while the fire is gone and there are very little coals present, the stove it still warm and putting off some heat. These stoves hot enough warm up soup and a nice cup of cocoa if the power goes off.
