Murrine-style glass is formed by sections of multi-colored glass rods, then melted together -- a technique used in Egypt between the 3rd and 1st Centuries BC. This glass cross comes on an adjustable braided cord, and is also available in other colors (enter "murrine" in the Search box). At this sweet price, you'll want to pick up two or more of these glass crosses for gifts! No two crosses are exactly the same so know the one pictured will be different than the one you will receive!

I ordered these crosses for family newborns, and they have significant meaning to me as I married into an Egyptian Orthodox family; my family is very aware of the meaning in my life of this history and culture. They would expect something this unique from me as a very special gift, especially to a baby, as a lifetime memento.

Nice cross for a young person

I bought this for a young lady's confirmation. I was looking for something nice but not too expensive as she was not a family member. I liked the selection of colors. The blue one was very pretty. I did not like the adjusting mechanism (would rather have a clasp) but some people may like that feature since you can adjust the length of it. Best Uses: Everyday; Cons: Adjusting mechanism; Describe Yourself: Career, Comfort-Oriented, Stylish; Pros: Beautiful, Good Length, Versatile
