This 4" Jerusalem Stone cross has been cut into two crosses and tied with a piece of leather: one as a gift to leave with your loved one as Jesus lifts their soul from this world, and the other for you to keep -- just as you will always keep them close to your heart. As the cross symbolizes eternal life that was given to us through the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ, this particular cross is also meant to remind us to pray that our loved one is resting at peace in the arms of our Savior. May this cross that was quarried in the very hills of Jerusalem where Jesus was crucified bring you comfort, and may your faith in our loving Father bring you peace. Comes in a velvet gift bag with certificate of authenticity and product description.
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.
