Alabaster, adaptability and vanguard
Its marble appearance, its ductility and translucence make alabaster a worthy material from ancient times because of its ornamental values. The name of this mineral comes from Alabastra, a city of the Ancient Egypt where it was dug out. Egyptians, Greeks, Etruscans and Romans made use of it for architectural coverings and for sculpting vases and statues.
The Paleochristian, Byzantine and Romanic architecture used it instead of glass for covering windows and it has been employed through the centuries for sculptures in Spain, Italy, England and Germany. Presently it is used in sculptures, in ornamental pieces and in buildings.
