Soapstone is a rock metamorphic in nature, being a mix of talc and schist. Despite being primarily composed of talc, the metamorphosed portion of the talc becomes a schist. Soapstone has been carved on for thousands of years. Softer versions of the rock have been likened to the feel of soap, hence its name. Soapstone can be found worldwide, with the largest deposits in Brazil. It is said to aid in calming and helps when a person is going through changes and transitions, or trying to change patterns that are no longer serving their purpose. It helps both to bring physical, emotional sense of peace and helps allow to open our channel to receive energy and be in tune with the Universal guidance making soapstone a great addition to any toolbox on any healing journey.
