Soapstone Carving Stone

Soapstone is a dense, close-grained, natural stone with no stratification or cleavage thus resisting the tendency to chip, split or flake and lends itself perfectly to sculptural carving. No other natural stone can be worked in like manner and retain the smooth finish and detail that can be achieved with basic carving tools. It remains one of the least expensive yet most satisfying 3D activities by developing the student's perception of the physical world and teaching spatial theory. Soapstone is one of the softest stones available, rated at 1 - 2 on the non-linear Mohs Hardness Scale. Our soapstone is sourced and imported from Brazil and are available in several colours. These are quality pieces of soapstone. They possess a homogenous structure (i.e. same composition throughout the stone), are easy to work by hand and rate between 1 - 2 on the Mohs hardness scale. It is easily sawn and worked with rasps, files, drills, carving tools. A great finish can be achieved with final smoothing using wet'n dry abrasive papers for a glass smooth finish and then polished to a high gloss.

Soapstone Individual Pieces: As soapstone pieces are supplied as natural stones, we are unable to supply the exact weights and or sizes ordered but will endeavour to supply the closest that can be found. The number in the () next to the colour indicates the approximate size range in kg that will be supplied for that colour. Price per Kg.
