Again, this stone is called 'alabastrites' by some, and is hollowed out into vessels for holding unguents, it having the reputation of pre serving them from corruption better than anything else. In a calcined state it is a good ingredient for plasters. That which is of a honey color is the most esteemed, covered with spots curling in whirls and not transparent. Alabastrite is considered defective when it is of a white or horn color, or approaching to glass in appearance.
