Alabaster has been around for centuries. In fact, ancient Egyptian alabaster carvings were found in king Tutankhamen's tomb. The ancient Chinese and Greeks also carved alabaster. Alabaster is a "drawing" stone meaning it has the ability to draw things to you or to draw things away from you, depending on what your needs are. It works wonderfully for drawing things of the Spirit to you, White alabaster summons the spiritual. Because alabaster is so soft, it does best with a sun's cleansing. It can also draw forgiveness, whether it be you that needs self forgiveness or the ability to forgive someone that has done you wrong. It also draws energy from other stones as well, meaning you can "soak" up the energy of one stone and have the properties of both stones with you while only carrying the alabaster. It helps to draw anger out of a person and to release it.
