Paperweight Heart

Twilight Fans: Can you help me with this symbolism?

I got a birthday gift for a friend, its an alabaster paperweight heart. On the back, it says it was made in Voltairre (sp?) Italy. I understand the city (like, where the Volturi reside), but is there any other significance to a specifically alabaster heart in the book? Or any at all?
Thanks so much!

The heart of course is symbolic alone, you see it everywhere for love and affection. The fact that it was made in Volterra, Italty makes it very special not only because of the New Moon reference, but because it being made in another country is just cool. But you want a Twilight fan opinion, and I being a self proclaimed Twilight guru, am going to give you one. You're little heart there could be a symbol for:
1. Love, which is what the whole series is about. Especially, that which is forbidden. Edward's love for Bella is unchanging as it that heart (unless it get's dropped)
2. Edward, being a vampire, is hard, solid, like "garnet", or stone . It could symbolize his heart, which for all intents and purposes he gave to Bella. A gift, much like the one currently in your possesion, that you intend to give to a friend.
3. When I looked up alabastor, it said that it is sometimes banded. So if this heart has different mixed colors, then it could symbolize the mixed love that Bella holds for both Edward and for Jacob. Of course that is in the third book and not the second.
4. If this heart is polished, which they usually are, then of course it being shiny could represent Edward as he stands in the sunlight.
I'm sure you can come up with other ideas for it's meaning, but I hope you enjoy these ones.
