Blocks: I am a sculptor looking for are deemed 'carving stones' or
less then 5 on the hardness scale. Marble is usually at the 5-6 levels and white
marble or alabaster is what I am particularly looking for. Size from 5lbs to
500lb pieces. In general though I am interest in trying anything new or
different in the less than 5 hardness area.

Offer 7: I do not know what
scale of hardness you use. According Mohs hardness all marbles and limestones,
travertines are under 5. Calcite marbles, limestones are about 3, dolomitic
marbles over 3 up to 4,
alabaster about 2. You have large choice of
materials. You must specify your priority.
Offer 6: hi we sell landscape
stone but resently discovered a large deposit of soap stone part of this deposit
has a very nice dark green serpentine we have some large stones it is harder
then soapstone but can be cut with a hand saw we are located in BC
Offer 5: I don't have blocks for
sculpting but the sculptor should be informed he's wrong in his hardness
figures: calcitic marble has a hardness of 3 and dolomitic marble 3.5 to 4,
perhaps 5 if it contains serpentine. Soapstone and alabaster have hardnesses of
1 and 2 respectively; they don't get any softer than this.
