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:||Pay close attention to the stated dimensions of the stone -- it is SMALL! I was stunned at just how small it actually is when I opened the package. Somewhat disappointing due to the size. Best Uses: Gift, Keepsake, Memento; Cons: Smaller than expected; Pros: Authentic stone|
