Soapstone

Soapstone is a mineral that was used for foot warmers or griddles because of its heat-retaining properties. Soapstone was carved into figurines and bowls in many countries in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Most of the soapstone seen today is from China or Japan. Green Mountain Soapstone Corporation is the largest supplier of soapstone to the United States. It is still being carved in the old styles.
