SOAPSTONE: has a long, creatively rich history among all peoples of the globe. Physically, it is known as steatite, or soaprock, and is a talc-schist; a type of metamorphic rock. It is largely made of the mineral talc and is rich in magnesium. It is byproduct of tension and upheaval: where tectonic plates are subducted, and heat and pressure, produced by dynamothermal metamorphism and metasomatism, and the influx of fluids--but without melting. It has been a medium for carving statues, bowls and stoves- by all peoples for thousands of years from India, Iran, Greece, Brazil, and the Americas.
