Alabaster, or calcium sulfate, a crystalline form of gypsum, is one of the first three sedimentary formations. It forms right near limestone and potash, very close to the earth's surface. It is found in many places throughout the world: Nova Scotia, upper New York State, Utah, Colorado, Egypt and Italy, to name but a few.
Alabaster is available in a variety of colors - white, white and pink, orange, green, and raspberry. Each stone has its own unique characteristics of color and veining. The pieces are turned to a thin wall thickness, which accentuates the natural translucency and veining of the stone, creating a unique, beautiful piece.
