best possible price for the stone. We have shipped thousands of tons of rough stone to

We are known for our translucent orange and
raspberry red alabaster, and thousands of sculptures which have
been made by hundreds of artists, including Native Americans.
We are suppliers for many sculpting supply businesses, as well
as direct to sculptors. Larger customers get better pricing
than customers buying in smaller quantities.
