Inukshuk

These life-like figures, originally created by the Inuit people, have acted as guides for travelers in Canada’s far north for centuries. “Inukshuk” is an Inuktitut word meaning “in the image of man”. They are a directional marker and an eternal symbol of the importance of friendship and communication between people, companies, and countries. The Inukshuk is often given as a memento of Canada.

Soapstone

Soapstone is originally composed of minerals such as pyrite, quartz and calcite. While the long formation process may create a smooth & soft texture throughout the stone, other minerals blend in creating the veins & irregular striations that appear on each piece.

Soapstone Care Card

Despite their durable appearance, soapstone needs to be handled with care. Soapstone is very soft and may be scratched easily with a ring or fingernail. Should this occur, use a black felt-tipped marker and apply to the affected area and quickly wipe with a soft cloth.

Furniture polish helps maintain the glossy finish of the stone. An occasional dusting is all the cleaning required. Do not immerse in water.
