This hand carved, floral motif soapstone bowl/censor holds smaller charcoals nicely (33mm like the ones in our charcoal kit: https://www.etsy.com/listing/186690891/charcoal-kit-sand-12lb-slate-tile?ref=shop_home_active_9 ). This burner requires sand be laid at the bottom under charcoals (included in charcoal kit listing).
Beautiful carved design (looks onyx-like): colors of stone naturally will vary. I have only the brown- mixed colors; a beautiful blend of colors- tan, some green, mostly light and dark browns. Weighs almost a .lb with lid. Remove the lid, and carry with you while smudging.
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.
