Soapstone (also known as steatite or soaprock) is atalc-shist, which is a type of metamorphic rock.
It is composed largely of the magnesium rich mineral talc.
It is produced by dynamothermal metamorphism and metasomatism, which occur in the zones where tectonic plates are subducted, changing rocks by heat and pressure, with influx of fluids, but without melting.
It has been a medium for carving for thousands of years.
