Soapstone stove guide

General about soapstone

Soapstone is mainly made of mineral talc and is so soft that even a fingernail can leave a crack. Only through other components of minerals, such as magnesite or penny, the soapstone is only more robust and harder. Thus, the soapstone would then be regarded as rock and not as a mineral. There is also soapstone in different colors, such as white, pink, purple, black, green and blue. However, the colors also have different strengths, which is why multi-colored variants are difficult to work, some even not at all.

The term soapstone comes from the fact that it has the same gloss and feels the same as bacon. Elsewhere, he is also called „Lavetzstein“. In the Middle Ages it was called, among other things, „Talcus“.

At that time, soapstone was used to make bathroom fixtures, such as sinkespecially in ancient Rome or Greece. But also vessels were made of it, as well as statues, figures or smaller pieces of jewelry, mostly in China or in ancient Egypt. What has remained traditional until today is the Soapstone stove , which is known for its above-average heat storage capacity.

As a result, their energy is released to the soapstone tiles. Inside, the gases cool down dramatically, sinking to the bottom where they land in the fireplacebe delivered at this altitude. Due to this design, the heat storage capacity is considerably high. However, soapstone has a high density, which makes the soapstone stove heavier than conventional ovens. Therefore, he must stand on stable foundation.

The oldest soapstone stoves are found in Wales, in the villages of Mund, Les Haudères and Evolène, from the middle to the end of the 16th century.
