 catlinite (pipestone or pipeclay)

Catlinite (also called pipestone or pipeclay) is a type of argillite (metamorphosed mudstone), usually brownish-red in color, which occurs in a matrix of Sioux quartzite. Because it is fine-grained and easily worked, it is prized by Native Americans for use in making sacred pipes such as calumets (Fr: "hollow reed") and chanunpas. pipestone quarries are located and preserved in pipestone National Monument outside of pipestone, Minnesota, in pipestone County, Minnesota, and at the pipestone River in Ontario, Canada.


The Canadian quarry is no longer used, although there are quarries in Canada where prized black stone is gleaned. The Ojibwa use both the red and black stone for their sacred pipes. The red catlinite from the pipestone quarries is the second softest rock in the world, and it lies under Sioux quartzite, the second hardest rock in the world. Only hand tools are used to reach the catlinite so it takes a long time to get to it. Only enrolled Native Americans are allowed to quarry for the stone at the pipestone National Monument, and thus it is protected from over-mining. Another quarry is located near Hayward, Wisconsin on the reservation, which the Ojibwa have used for centuries. The stone there is harder than the stone from pipestone National Monument.
