I think the steatite article should be merged with this one. Does anyone see any reason it should not? Aleta 11:20, 6 December 2006 (UTC)Aleta

I've merged the text and redirected "steatite" to this article. Now, if someone could merge the histories, that would be helpful! I don't know anything about doing that. Aleta 00:10, 16 January 2007 (UTC)


English Usage -- SOAPSTone stands for subject, occasion, audience, purpose, speaker, tone. 1veedo 02:55, 15 January 2007 (UTC) 24.5.11.127 (talk) 02:50, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

Should we include the way Native Californians used it? They traded it- they would make pots and pans, because when soapstone is heated, it heats evenly. --24.5.11.127 (talk) 02:50, 17 November 2009 (UTC)WinifredJ

AQBachler (talk) 18:04, 1 November 2010 (UTC) I reverted ladyshallots undo, i informed her on her talk page that a request for citation is not the same as a request for clarification, which seems to be what she wants.

Incorrect; I did not ask for a clarification; I asked for a citation for the explanation that is given. LadyofShalott 03:13, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

I made a small edit - taking out "whiskey stones" as another name for soapstone. It's not. While the stones are made of soapstone, it'd be like calling trees "toothpicks" or "paper" Carbonatedserpentine (talk) 17:35, 14 December 2013 (UTC).
