Soapstone Hand Carved Gorilla 65mm

Soapstone is a type of metamorphic rock that is mostly composed of the mineral talc. Its name came from its "soapy" feel and soft texture. Soapstone is commonly grey, brown, green or bluish in colour. This soft rock has been used for thousands of years and it is still a material of choice used in many ways today throughout the world.

As early as 8,000 years ago, Native Americans used the rock to make carved sculptures and cooking bowls. In the Late Archaic Period, Native Americans from North America made bowls, smoking pipes, cooking slabs and ornaments.
