The ALABASTER is such a soft stone it can be used in different ways. It 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. For myself, it works wonderfully for drawing things of the Spirit to me, the white color summons the spiritual. I use this stone to assist in my artwork. It helps promote clearly what I wish to make and the how of doing it. It assists me in seeing new things to create as well as assisting in old things.

Give it a try i am really happy with the results.
