About Shoushan Stone / Agalmatolite:

Sold to me under the name “Blue Snakeskin Jasper” I failed to find any information on it by that name, but after a bit of digging I found that it’s a material Chinese crafters use for making fantastic sculptures. In any case – it is a beautiful stone with a fantastic colour combination of light blue, beige and red;

[Pagodite] or agalmatolite is a pyrophyllite that is usually soft and sometimes soapy, with a greyish green or yellowish colour; sometimes also referred to as soapstone. It is mainly composed of two minerals: pyrophyllite and dickite.
[Pyrophyllite] is a phyllosilicate mineral composed of aluminium silicate hydroxide;
[Dickite] (Al2Si2O5(OH)4) is a phyllosilicate clay mineral named after the metallurgical chemist Allan Brugh Dick, who first described it. It is chemically composed of 20.90% aluminium, 21.76% silicon, 1.56% hydrogen and 55.78% oxygen. It has the same composition as kaolinite, nacrite, and halloysite, but with a different crystal structure (polymorph). Dickite sometimes contains impurities such as titanium, iron, magnesium, calcium, sodium and potassium.
