Chinese soapstone, also known as "Huang Hua stone" or "Chinese steatite," is a type of metamorphic rock primarily composed of talc, with varying amounts of other minerals such as magnesite, dolomite, and chlorite. It is renowned for its smooth texture, which allows for easy carving and sculpting.

This stone has been utilized in China for centuries, dating back to ancient times. It has been traditionally used for carving sculptures, seals, decorative objects, and other artwork due to its workability and aesthetic qualities.

Chinese soapstone comes in a range of colors, including shades of white, gray, green, and brown. It is often characterized by its soft appearance and ability to retain intricate details carved into it. Throughout Chinese history, soapstone carvings have been highly prized and are considered an important part of Chinese artistic heritage.
