What Is Soapstone?

Soapstone is a metamorphic rock that is composed primarily of talc, with varying amounts of chlorite, pyroxenes, micas, amphiboles, carbonates, iron oxides and other mineral impurities.

Because it is composed primarily of talc it is usually very soft 1-2 on the mohs scale. Soapstone is typically gray, bluish, green, or brown in color but it can also be found in black, white, and red. It is often variegated which means it can have irregular patches or streaks of colour or harder and softer stone. These variegation zones can also be weak points in the stone, susceptible to fracture. Its name is derived from its “soapy” feel and softness. It has a high fusion point, low electrical and thermal conductivity, superior heat retention and high lubricating power. It is chemically inert.

The name "soapstone" is often used in other ways.

USE graphic 17

Miners and drillers use the name for any soft rock that is soapy or slippery to the touch. Many people use the name Steatite interchangeably with “soapstone.” However, some people reserve the name Steatite for a fine-grained unfoliated soapstone that is nearly 100% talc and highly suited for carving.
