Welcome to Librarium Online!
i swear ill stop asking so many questions/starting so many threads soon, and this seems to be a slightly pointless question.
what kind of white stone was used to build settras tomb? is there any fluff on it? i want to paint my ushabti as if they are made from the same stone as his pyramid i.e. the guardians of his tomb
Well, i dont know of any fluff on it, but the great pyramids in egypt were made of limestone, then faced with a harder type of white limestone, i forget what its called.
awesome thank you
Many of the Pyramids during the Old Kingdom of Egypt were made from granite. During the Middle Kingdom they began casing the finished pyramid in limestone because when it reflected the sunlight it looked like gold.
Many scientists and archeologists now think that along with granite and limestone, concrete was used, which would have made the egyptians the inventors of concrete and not the greeks.
I think you should go with either granite or limestone if you want to imply that your Ushabti are made from the same materials as a tomb/pyramid. Unfortunately there isn't any actual fluff regarding what material settra's tomb was made from
