Wonderful deep amber and jade green colors. Circa 1840……GREAT CONDITION !! Soapstone is a soft rock, that has been carved by the Chinese for centuries, and is still being carved today. The name derives from the soap-like feel that some of the softer grades of soapstone have. The softness of the rock is due to talc in its composition, and the amount of talc can vary from 80% (very soft) to about 30%. On the Mohs scale of hardness, soapstone has a hardness of 1 to 5, whereas jade has a hardness of 6 to 6.5. It is often possible to scratch a piece of soapstone with a fingernail or knife blade. Because of continuing production over several centuries, it can be difficult to date soapstone carvings, and there are many that were made for the tourist market. Two available, £80 each....
