What type of rock is pipestone?

Answer

'Pipestone or Catlinite', is a kind of red, carvable rock that was used by Native Americans for pipes and effigies. The red catlinite from the Pipestone mines is the second malleable rock in the earth, and it lies below Sioux quartzite, the second unbreakable rock in theUniverse. Only hand apparatuses are used to get the catlinite so it takes a long time to get to it.
