For handmade alabaster, one must make a close inspection, including feeling the piece. It should be slightly waxy, be very translucent, light and the color of white or cream with veins of a dark red. Be aware that any richly vibrant colored items sitting with the alabaster is probably dyed soapstone, not alabaster as some dealers will inform you.
