Soapstone Talc Powder

What is Soapstone Powder?

Soapstone powder is a naturally occurring magnesium-rich mineral. It is also known as talc or steatite and is denoted by a chemical formula: H2Mg3(SiO3)4, i.e., hydrated magnesium silicate.

This unique mineral forms under the earth’s surface where the tectonic plates are subducted. Despite being particularly dense, soapstone is easy to carve.

So, quarrying it from an outcrop is done manually using quartzite tools. Later, the white, grey, or pale green mineral is crushed to form lumps and powder.
