Here is a site that our local community college uses for soapstone. It is a very nice black stone.

Use a search and look for Chip Chats, thats the name of the Magazine put out by the National wood carvers Asso. They have links to all kinds of wood carving sites. The most popular wood for wood carving is bass wood. there are others that are usuable but this is the standard. In europe its called lime wood.
