NUART Soapstone Brown/White (1-5kg pieces)




Soapstone lends itself perfectly to sculptural carving. No other natural stone can be worked in like manner and retain the smooth finish and detail that can be achieved with basic carving tools. 

Soapstone is one of the softest stones available, rated at 1 - 2 on the non-linear Mohs Hardness Scale. NUART soapstone is sourced and imported from Brazil and India and is available in several colours. These are quality pieces of soapstone. They possess a homogenous structure (i.e. same composition throughout the stone), are easy to work by hand and rate between 1 - 2 on the Mohs hardness scale. It is easily sawn and worked with rasps, files, drills, carving tools. A great finish can be achieved with final smoothing using "wet'n dry" abrasive papers for a glass smooth finish and then polished to a high gloss.

Colours (subject to availability) include red, green, brown/white, dark green, yellow green, lime green and turquoise. 

Brown/white stone is also available in larger pieces ranging from 6 -25kg. Please contact the Richmond store on 03 9428 1511 if you wish to purchase larger pieces.
