Carved solid alabaster
Alabaster is a type of mineral or rock that is considered soft and easy to form, and as such, it was a common choice for carving decorative artifacts throughout history. It has two variations differing in their hardness, one being gypsum alabaster, mainly used in medieval Europe, and the other calcite, which was widespread in the Middle East. Apart from the slight differences in hardness, they share similar properties, including appearance, as both are lightly colored or translucent.
