Soapstone, also known as Soaprock or Steatite, is a type of metamorphic rock. It is largely composed of the mineral talc and is thus rich in magnesium.


• It is produced by dynamo-thermal metamorphism and metasomatism, which occurs in the areas where tectonic plates are subducted, changing rocks by heat and pressure, with influx of fluids, but without melting. It has been a medium for carving for thousands of years.
