Description
Probably from a sample set of art and architecture marbles for the Paola Triscornia di Ferd family in Carrara, Italy. This may be Egyptian Alabaster. It is travertine composed of medium to coarse crystalline calcite that can be banded or form in pods. The Egyptians quarried this stone in antiquity, and it was integrated into Roman culture after the Romans entered Egypt. It is rarely quarried today.
