    I purchased one - impulse buy - at Barnes and Noble, originally for my desk at home. But - it is so ornate and beautiful - I decided to put it on my bookshelf - peering out at everyone as they walk in. It's simply gorgeous! The very next day - I decided to buy another one (a bit darker colored one) for my desk at work! I'm simply in love with these owls - the next time I need a unque gift for someone - I'll be buying my third! They are simply beautiful!

    A  beautiful crafted piece.  It is of substantial weight, and will do any desk an honor.  Also, I have heard that an owl in your home is good luck.
    .  It sure can't hurt.  I highly recommend this piece to everyone.

    Alabaster Owl

    Alabaster is the Queen of Stones and has been beloved for thousands of years by cultures all around the world. The evaporite of ancient inland seas, it is part of the geology of our planet. I call it petrified water because it shares the fluid and translucent quality of water
