Soapstone is a form of metamorphic rock that is high in magnesium-talc. It is found in areas where tectonic plates are subducted. The change in heat and pressure found in these areas causes the formation. This stone has been used as a carving material for thousands of years because of how soft this stone is naturally. It has also been used in cooking and heating materials because of its high heat resistance. Soapstone has been found in ancient Egyptian amulets and obelisks. Native Americans used this stone for cooking and pipe carving. Vikings used soapstone to create cookware which they sold on their journies.
