The Om symbol has been delicately etched onto these round soapstone incense burners in India. These combination burners can be used to burn both incense sticks and cones.

Soapstone is also called steatite or soaprock at times. Metamorphic rocks, such as this one, are formed from one type of rock through a physical change over time.
