Arizona Silhouette is where I get mine. They’re very reliable and ship very quickly. Great people to do business with.

Soapstone. Blick Art supply has two San Diego locations. Lee Valley has a nice green soapstone I have used.

Pipestone (Catlinite) also might be interesting. And then there is the option of using crushed stone in a cyanoacrylate or epoxy bed, or the Inlace kits.

I’ve seen on ebay some pulverized powder that might be able to be used. I was considering it. Mark DeCou and I shared some turquoize but I’ve not used it yet.
