Egyptian Alabaster Container
The translucent stone veining of this limestone/travertine creates a special blend of color and texture that is specifically found in Middle Egypt. It's given the name Egyptian Alabaster because of its unique history as a valued material and color pattern.
This container would make an incredible tea light holder, to play up its soft glow. It is not water safe to preserve the material. It does make for a gorgeous container for dried herbs and flowers. Enjoy it as an interesting, historical object and piece of art.
