    Oriental alabaster is a term typically used to refer to a type of hard translucent marble, also known as onyx marble or Egyptian alabaster, found in Asia, particularly the Middle East, including Egypt. It is often used for vases, ornaments, and other decorative items due to its smooth texture and attractive natural patterns.
