White marble is imported from Italy and is largely used for making idols of worship and tiny replicas of the Taj. Soapstone (popularly known as gorara stone) is sourced from Jhansi. It is multi-colored and has tints of green, pink, gray and tan brown. It is known to be the most durable and is majorly used for export items like vases, candle holders, lamp shades, table tops, boxes etc. Both the stones have to go through the same processes. So, all the work is distributed and delegated to each craftsman by an in-charge who heads the contract and brings in the order from the shopkeepers. Each craftsman specializes in the task he performs.
