VIRGINIA SOAPSTONE (Steatite) for Carving.
It comes from a supply that was formerly owned by
a stone mason who built Tulikivi Stoves.
I know he got his stone in Virginia, but I'm not sure exactly where.
I've done some research and it looks alot like
The Alberene Soapstone Company's - Old Dominion ,
but it could be Black Pearl.
It has a nice even grain.
Some pieces have light white &/or brown veining
or a somewhat speckled look.
We have sold many peices of this on EBAY
