Soapstone has been used for carving for thousands of years, and not just as a decorative item. Vikings used it to make pots, cups, and bowls; it has been used to create a heat resistant air intake for blacksmiths forges.
Artists may be interested in these pieces to carve; some may be interested in it as mineral specimens. I have sold numerous pieces to reenactors of various time periods, too!
This Soapstone is sourced from all over the world. Some pieces are from Norway, some from the UK, some from Central Europe, some from the USA. We get what we can at the lowest prices we can find. Because of this, the composition and colours of the stone may vary from shipment to shipment.
The pictures you see here are representative of the products and are usually not the exact item you will receive. Where various grades are available we do try to photograph each grade – but some photographs are still on their way!
