The Alabast, stone work of Egypt dates back to pharaonic times when a lot of household equipment were cut in stone. All Sirocco stone work is done in local stone, mostly green granite and alabaster, from the Nile area in the workshops of the area.
The work with the alabaster stone origins from the pharaonic era of Egypt. The alabaster stone exists in different shades of white and beige and in different densities of stone crystals.
Most of the stone used by Sirocco is a matte crystalized snow white stone. The alabaster mountains are in the Luxor area and so are most of the work-shops. All the work is done by hand and the process goes through many steps. In order for the fine crystals in the stone not to break, the cutting must be done gradually over days. In the night the stone is left wrapped in cotton with glue and each day a layer of the stone is cut off until the final shape is achieved.
