Our polished wall hanging cross measures 4" high. It is carved from beautiful Jerusalem Stone that has been quarried in the Holy Land and handcrafted in the USA. All of our crucifixes and crosses come in a gift bag with a certificate of authenticity.
History of the Stone:
Jerusalem stone is a limestone material found in the areas between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, and between Galilee and Haifa. This stone was excavated by the Israelites as early as 1000 to 2000 B.C, and used to construct such historical religious sites as the “City of Jerusalem” and “King Solomon’s Temple.” Today this treasured stone is used in all modern construction within the city of Jerusalem.

|Review:||Very appropriate gift...just a little disappointed in the slightly marred appearance of the cross...probably to be expected in natural substances.|
