Jerusalem Stone Buying Guide
Walking through the Old City of Jerusalem is absolute magic. There is the contrast between the ancient ruins and the relatively new buildings but the magic really comes in when you see what connects it all together. The entire Old City of Jerusalem is made from Jerusalem Stone, as it has been for thousands of years. In fact, by law, everything in the Old City must be faced with this limestone. Jerusalem Stone comes in white, pinks and reds but when the sunlight hits the stone, it has a golden tint to it, making it understandable why they call the city "Jerusalem of Gold". Bring home the feel of the Old City through the multiple pieces of Judaica made by Israeli artists. Each piece is one of a kind as no two slabs of Jerusalem Stone are the same.
