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.

Green & Blue are Unscented, Orange is Tangerine Citrus:

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)
