Alabaster is a form of gypsum. Because it is a somewhat crumbly stone it can actually be used for chalk markings. Perhaps its most helpful among it stone healing properties is its absorption qualities that can help draw energies that you are lacking in any way.

Melody, author of Love is in the Earth (a must-have reference book for your crystal healing library), believes that alabaster can unlock secrets of the pyramids when used during meditation, taking the meditator to the time period when the pyramids were being built. Indeed, the ancient sphinx of Egypt was carved out of alabaster.

Crystal Healers Suggest Ways to Heal with Alabaster

Spiritual Art Chalk - Alabaster is mostly white in color, sometimes it will have just a "hint" of soft colors as well. It is a very soft stone, 2 on a scale of 1-10. It is easily carved into charms etc. But because 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. At times, early in my walk, I would use the alabaster when I was searching for my spiritual path and would also use the alabaster to draw certain "spiritual" things that had been given to me, that I came to find later were wrong, or at least wrong for me. Because the alabaster is so soft, it does best with a sun cleansing and should not be used in making elixirs.

Alabaster can 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 release it to the light. ~stones77

Artwork Assistant - 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 I already know how to make but need to shift to a new level. It allows me to do things like making a gourd basket that has pine needle work added to the top and beadwork used as trimming so that many aspects that I already know how to do are put into one piece or art. ~whitehorse woman
