Alabaster Candleholder

Artisans in Egypt use alabaster hewn from mountains in the Luxor area to hand craft these candleholders. Sculpting chunks of multi-hued alabaster into perfectly smooth candle holders is a painstaking, multi-step process. The cutting is done gradually over several days to ensure the fine crystals in the stone don’t break, and pieces are glued and wrapped in cotton at night to “rest”.  

When lit from within, alabaster glows with soft, diffused, creamy light, unique to the stone.

Available in Medium and Large. 

Works well with our Greentree Pillar Candles.

Note: Intended for use as a candle holder only. Does not hold water. 


10 years ago, Danish native Malou Lenskjold visited her cousins Ellen and Henrik Raven who lived in the Siwa Oasis in the Sahara Desert. Inspired by local handcrafts and materials in the region, Malou, Ellen, and Henrik launched their family-based company, Sirocco in 2010 and introduced Egyptian made products to the Danish market. Working with local artisans, Sirocco designs and creates a wide range of furniture and accessories from natural materials including salt, alabaster, copper, stone, wool, and cotton. All products are made using ancient handcrafting traditions that have been handed down from generation-to-generation.

Started with the tealight size, adding to my collection with the larger size. Cast a beautiful glow with lit candles (real or battery-powered). Safely packed and quick delivery. Thank you!

Simply gorgeous but be careful!

My wife and I received a pair of these candleholders as a Christmas gift. Unfortunately we realized too late that alabaster is very porous, the wax from a pillar candle was impossible to remove after it had melted and we cracked the medium sized holder when removing the spent candle. I ended up ordering a bee one to replace the original and will now sheath a candle inside with glass to protect the alabaster. It gives of a gorgeous glow and we love them!
