What Should You Give as a 37th Anniversary Gift?
While it can come in a variety of colors, alabaster is typically found in a creamy white color with semi-translucent properties. It's often been thought of as a stone for purifying and healing and, in some cases, was used to either draw good things to a person or pull bad away from them.
Used for carving figurines, statues and adornments, alabaster is considered both a noble mineral and a precious stone and can be found made from fine-grained gypsum or calcite, a harder variety. You can find alabaster used most often in homeware, though it is occasionally used in jewelry. You can also nod to alabaster's color and properties with other natural materials like mother of pearl.
