What is Soapstone?
Soapstone is a metamorphic rock made of talc. It is typically gray, green, bluish, or brown in colour. Most Soapstone deposits were formed around 300 to 400 million years ago and can be found all over the world. It’s aptly named as such due to its smooth and ‘soapy’ texture similar to that of a dry soap bar.
What are the uses of Soapstone?
Although soft, Soapstone is a strong and durable rock comparable to high-end marble. It can also absorb and radiate heat which is why it is used as a material for cookwares like cooking pots and pizza plates, as well as for tobacco pipes, fireplaces, wood-burning stoves, and countertops. Soapstone is also primarily used for manual carving, just like Alabaster.
