Residents of Jerusalem in antiquity built their homes out of Jerusalem Stone (a form of limestone), quarried in the city. The residents then used the pits that remained as a cistern to collect rainwater beneath the homes. Ancient quarries can still be found around Jerusalem, as well as Rehov Hamadregot in Nahlaot, he Garden Tomb and near Yemin Moshe, in the Sanhedria neighborhood.
The story of Jerusalem Stone was the inspiration for our Menorahs, which, of course, are also created out of fossilized coral. Our Menorahs candles burn up to two hours and can easily be filled with Ultra Pure Paraffin oil. Expertly boxed, our Menorahs come with plenty of Paraffin oil, a brochure that explains how we harvest the coral and how we make our products, as well as a Deed of Land! After all, this is a piece of real estate. It’s just portable!
