Soapstone Sculpture Block for Carving


Steatite Soapstone has been used for carving for hundreds of years. It makes a great carving medium, it is a soft and yet very dense, easily carveable stone.

Our soapstone blocks are pre cut in a few sizes:

  • 31″ x 21″ x 10″
  • 37″ x 21″ x 10″
  • 43″ x 21″ x 10″
  • 28″ x 21″ x 10″

These blocks are mined in the Mariana soapstone region of Brazil, at the Barroca Soapstone quarry. The Barroca Soapstone, is a light gray , lightly veined stone. Once oiled or waxed, it becomes a very dark black with pronounced white marbling.
