ALABASTER VS MARBLE – DO YOU KNOW THE DIFFERENCES?

We are alabaster suppliers. For more information: CONTACT US!

 

Alabaster vs marble are materials that most deceive at first sight. There are differences in their hardness and their texture”

Alabaster is softer and lighter than marble. Alabaster weighs 143 lbs. per cubic foot while marble weighs 162 lbs. per cubic foot. Alabaster is a chemical sedimentary rock, which means it was made of detritus precipitated from a body of water. Whereas, Marble is a metamorphic rock, which was formed out of another sort of rock due to the extreme heat and pressure in the Earth’s crust.

Marble is twice harder than Alabaster.

On the other hand, Alabaster is a translucent material. Marble never becomes as translucent as Alabaster. This characteristic make to Alabaster a good material to windowpanes, and to create beautiful environments.

Finally, Alabaster is cheaper than marble. Though both are found all over the world, Alabaster is more common in North America than marble is. Marble is usually named after the place it comes from, such as Carrara, but Alabaster isn’t. Alabaster is named according to its composition.

    By its effects with light I would prefer, I see much more elegant alabaster.
