Our large wall crucifixes and hanging wall crosses are carved from actual Jerusalem Stone quarried in the Holy Land, handcrafted in the USA and measure 7.5" high. Crucifixes and crosses come with gift box, gift card and certificate of authenticity.
History of the Stone- Jerusalem Stone is a limestone material found between the Jordan River and Mediterranean Sea and between Galilee and Haifa. This stone was excavated by the Israelites as early as 1000 to 2000 B.C. and used for construction of historical and religious sites such as the “City of Jerusalem” and “King Solomon’s Temple.” This treasured stone is still used in modern construction in Jerusalem.

|Review:||I searched for crosses on many different websites, and this was this best one. It is not big, but it is very nice. I like the stone. The only thing is that I expected the engraving to be directly on the cross, but the engraving was on a plate and the plate was placed on the cross.|
