Bumps along the soapstone seam- what does this mean?

10 years ago

My soapstone has been installed for a few months now and I keep forgetting to ask about these bumps around the seam. I did notice them pretty soon after the stone was installed but with all the other things going on they always got pushed to the back. I have googled and searched the internet for some clues but can't find anything to shine some light on this.

Basically there are various sized raised bumps in the soapstone along the length of the seam. They are small for the most part although some are 1/4" in diameter. You can feel them and certainly see them when the light shines along the seam and they extend about 1/2" out from either side of the seam.

Any ideas? This is kinda weird I know for a solid piece of stone.
