Jerusalem Stone Catholic gifts are created from a signature type of limestone quarried from Jerusalem, Bethlehem and other parts of Israel. Jerusalem stone typically has a pinkish or golden hue to it, however some varieties can be found in gray or off-white tones. The city of Jerusalem draws its nickname, “Jerusalem of Gold”, from the Jerusalem stone’s golden color. Under municipal regulations all buildings in Jerusalem must be faced with Jerusalem stone, giving the city its golden hue, especially in the evening. The specially crafted Jerusalem Stone Catholic gifts are imported directly from the Israeli port of Haifa to the United States, where master craftsmen engrave inspirational pieces to remind Catholics of their religious heritage. Jerusalem Stone Catholic gifts are unique Catholic gifts that will be cherished for years to come.
