Soapstone with gold flecks?

I think I've read just about every thread on this site relating to soapstone. I'm having a really hard time finding slabs within about 3 hours of where I live, but one of the few in town is this one, billed as "Niagara Black Soapstone". Up close, it has flecks of gold (mica I'm guessing?) in the veining, some probably larger than my pinkie fingernail. Has anyone seen any with this gold in it? It's very pretty, though I'm not 100% decided on whether it'll be right for my kitchen or not, and I'm a little worried that it might not actually be real soapstone.
