  1. Soapstone is a beautiful decorative rock that is made up of talc and magnesium. It has been used throughout history for carving. Today soapstone is used as a material from which soapstone stoves, soapstone blocks and counters are constructed for use in the home. I suggest Soapstone is best suitable for Stone Carving.
