|Name:||Talc or Steatite|
From "talk" (Persian) talc|
From "steatos" (Greek) suet
|Description:||White with a hint of green. This is a very soft stone, and so it has a soapy feel to it, where your fingers rub small amounts off the surface. In fact, one of its names is "soapstone".|
Soapstone is very easy to carve.
