Soapstone has a rich history among the Aztecs. This versatile and durable material was highly valued by the Aztecs for its various uses. It was primarily used for creating intricate sculptures and carvings, showcasing the artistic skills of the Aztec craftsmen. Soapstone was also utilized for making practical items such as cooking vessels and utensils due to its heat-resistant properties. Additionally, it was believed to have spiritual significance and was used in religious ceremonies and rituals. The Aztecs recognized the beauty and practicality of soapstone, making it an integral part of their culture and daily lives.
