Soapstone at Laisholm

Show map

Soapstone can be sawn, cut and polished.

A soapstone quarry at the southeastern point of the Sörtjärnen tarn is reached via 200 metres of good footpath which begins 100 metres after the asphalt road ceases. Soapstone, and its specially fine variant steatite which is found here and is a clear dark green colour, has some very singular properties. It can be sawn, cut and polished. In addition it has extraordinary heat-retaining properties and is therefore used in stoves among other things.
