We love the orange alabaster stone for carving. Softer than marble, the beautiful brilliant orange stone is rare in the mineral kingdom. Alabaster forms close to the earth’s surface and is quarried all over the world, including the United States.
The Urn Garden artists have transformed slabs of alabaster stone, accentuated the natural translucency and veining of the stone, and created a unique, beautiful art piece cremation urn.
