is PA Soapstone actually soapstone?

Back again and looking for advice! I went to a local provider who had three slabs of what they call “PA soapstone” and viewed them. The individual working there told me they were a “5” on the Mohs scale. I’ve been reading about products being sold as soapstone that are actually serpentine and know that this falls outside of traditional soapstone hardness scale rating. Does any soapstone expert out there know if this kind of stone labeled “PA” is actually soapstone?
