These are a ton of fun to make.  They're organic vegetable/glycerin M&P, skin safe colors and several layers of mica powder, with essential oils.

Hooray, mineral soaps that actually look like minerals!  I'll have to show my rockhound Dad these soaps.  Clever you!

LOL @ SemiCharm & Grendelsmom!  Rocks and minerals, heh.  Amor_fati, as far as a tutorial goes... have soap molds made from real gemstones or rocks, which you can do with the make-your-own soap mold kits the mix & pour types.  (and rocks of course!)   From there, you use different color mica powders to line the molds & pour in your colored soaps, possibly adding a few white flakes and chunks, for posterity.  Playing with mica powder is so fun, too!  It gets on everything, which is awesome.  I use it for eye shadows, too.  =)  Lots of love ladies!

I love doing these! I do mine without a mold and kinda hand carve them at the end.  Here's a tute I wrote up for the way I do it (no in progress pics though)
