Quik-Crete is not for art, but there is high quality cement that looks almost like marble when set because it's very fine- you might have to seek out sculpture supply companies or (sounds weird) grave marker companies locally to find out where you can get it. It's heavy stuff, therefore shipping is expensive, buy local & haul it yourself if you can.

The grave marker/ mortuarty people might be your best bet, they might buy in large quantities & sell you some extra...
