      I would tend to question this being soapstone but it could be. The base shows rotary cut where it should show up/down cuts. I would sooner think it is man made material.

      I know this post is 5 years old, but I also have the same ashtray for anyone who is researching in the future. It is definitely Resin material, possibly a huge chunk of bakelite, I don't know, but definitely not natural material.

      As far as the CL if anyone knows please post up! I am researching the sig now without much luck.
