Alabaster

natural stone

What’s alabaster?

Alabaster is a very much appreciated natural stone due to its special colour, texture, streaks and translucent properties .

Only Alabaster is able to display that great variety of shades, enabling each item to be unique, unrepeatable, and is able of creating that cosy, relaxing effect thanks to the alabaster colour and traslucid properties.

In the past, it was considered to be a semi-precious stone. That’s why, in ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, craftsmen used alabaster for canopic jars and various other sacred and sepulchral objects.
