The working of alabaster is an ancient tradition in the Tuscan hill town of Volterra. The Etruscans used alabaster to make urns, and also for creating capitals, tabernacles, vases, and other works of art. Alabaster is the only translucent stone existing in nature. It is much softer than marble, and can be carved into pieces rich in details, with a lovely luminous quality.
