This stone, from the Volterra region of Italy, is a medium soft stone that will carve and polish easily. It is a solid white – light will not filter through the stone as it does with translucent white alabaster. There is no veining and rarely ever a flaw.
Imported from Italy this cylinder eliminates the work required to reduce a stone boulder or slab into the round for carving. Can also be used for stone turning on a wood lathe creating alabaster vessels. Approximate dimensions: 4″ w by 8″ h. Approximate weight: 8.0 lbs.
