About Us

Meet Earthtone Trading:

At Earthtone Trading, we believe that creativity is the key element in any endeavor.  As artists ourselves, we understand all levels of the creative process. The most important aspect of art is the base material.  As a premier supplier of top quality, ringing Alabaster sculpting stone, we make sure your artistic eye is enhanced with our stone. Our stone is guaranteed to be the best Alabaster you sculpt.

They say business is all about location, location, location.  We are lucky to live in a place known as Color Country in southern Utah.  This location has provided us with many unique colors of Alabaster that are not found anywhere else on earth. All our colorful stones are completely natural and come out of the ground vibrant.  We truly care for the stone by using mining methods that do not require explosives of any kind.

Whether you are just starting out or have mastered the fine art of sculpting, we know you will be pleased with the perfect stone from Earthtone Trading.
