This morning we went down to Gardenstate soapstone to meet with Jay. He showed us a number of different slabs. It is incredible the different variations that are there. Some of the stone was absolutely stunning, but just not for our kitchen. We're looking for something that's dark without a lot of green hue to it and light veining without any of the mottled variations. The PA mitus seems like the forerunner, but even there there are so many different looks depending on the exact slab. Jay sent us home with a sample, and made notes on what we liked. He's going to email us photos of slabs he thinks we'd like from off the next shipment. All in all a very productive field trip.
