Alabaster resembles marble but differs from it, among other things, by its translucency. Used for a very long time in stone carving or for sculptures (kind for a long time, at the time of antiquity), it was then replaced by marble.
This mineral is perfect as a candle container since the flame reveals its transparency. Like an almost translucent stone. Admit it is beautiful. And this material being natural, each candle is different and unique. Admit it's cool.
Making Cire Trudon alabaster candles requires long and meticulous cutting and polishing. The containers and lids are carved from more or less veined blocks from Spain.
If you're curious, this video shows you part of the process.
