37th Anniversary – Alabaster

For your thirty-seventh wedding anniversary, celebrate with a gift of alabaster, which is the name given to two different minerals: gypsum and calcite. Gypsum is soft and calcite is tougher, representing the softness but durability of your marriage.

Alabaster is usually thin enough to allow light to pass through, so gifts such as vases and bowls can make lovely decorative windowsill items. Other gifts made of alabaster include:

  • Chess sets
  • Ornaments
  • Statues

Alabaster is a beautiful material and often resembles marble. Its colour ranges from warm hues of cream to yellow and orange, and is a gift well worth considering on this wonderful occasion.
