Alabaster is sawn cut into slabs, also in blocks or in cylinders of various diameters. Tiles are about 18 in x 19.7 in (45 cm x 50 cm), on average. Rare tiles of exceptional size and quality can be found, up to 31.5 in (80 cm).
The thickness of alabaster is commonly used from 0.47 in to 1.18 in (12 to 30 mm) depending on shape, application, sizes and type of fixing.
