Soapstone is a type of metamorphic rock that is composed of talc, chlorite, and other minerals, and it is known for its soft, soapy feel and its ability to be easily carved and shaped. It is called soapstone because it feels greasy or soapy to the touch, due to its high talc content. Soapstone is known for its durability and resistance to heat. Soapstone is usually gray, green, or black in colour and has a smooth, matte finish until it is polished and finish has been added to reveal its true colours.
