General information on soapstone:
Soapstone is a natural mineral (magnesium silicate), which in mineralogy also goes by the names talc or steatite. Generally, dust does not belong to be inhaled, but in small quantities, which occur during normal manual processing with rasps and coarse sandpaper (up to grain size 120, grey sandpaper), it is not harmful to health. Polishing is, after all, done with water and water sandpaper, which binds the dust. Our stone is purest quality without foreign minerals.
