Soapstone is a metamorphic rock rich in magnesium and iron. It is produced by dynamothermal metamorphism, which occurs at the areas where tectonic plates are subducted, changing rocks by heat and pressure, and without melting. Steatite is a type of soapstone. It is relatively soft, and may feel soapy when touched, hence the name. Traditional Inuit carvings often use soapstone.
