Alabaster was originally used for grand tables and furniture during the age of stone. It is said that the legendary Round Table of Arthur was of Alabaster white and red coral. Due to the ease with which it is carved, it became a popular statuary stone. The wide color variations also made it a favorite of toy makers. Children's marbles were made from alabaster in a variety of colors, hence the name "Ally." All of our domestic stones come from select quarries throughout the United States, and are of the highest quality. Shapes, sizes and weights vary.
PLEASE NOTE - As with all natural materials there is some variation amongst pieces. The color swatches above are examples of stones and do not represent the colors or patterns of every piece or any piece in it's entirety. Mother Nature controls what is inside the stone and she hopes you will find beauty in them all. There is no bad stone only unrealized sculpture.
Colorado Alabaster is a fine textured, somewhat translucent and sometimes beautifully banded. Iron, copper and other minerals native to this area give the stone its exquisit colors which distinquish the Colorado Alabaster from other deposits. Each vein of alabaster has its own unique color (gray, white or pink) and characteristics according to the area from which it is quarried.
