Product Of The Holy Land: Jerusalem Stone

Jun 20, 2008
Used in the construction of many historical buildings in the Middle East, Jerusalem Stone is a highly sought after element mined in Jerusalem and Bethlehem and surrounding areas.

Jerusalem Stone has been quarried for centuries, and used as a building element that is as effective as it is attractive. Recently, Jerusalem Stone has made it's way overseas and is now a popular building material used in the construction of large buildings in the United States.

Even buildings that are already standing and not in need of new construction are being faced (or coated with) Jerusalem Stone.

But what exactly makes Jerusalem Stone so desirable?

* Jerusalem Stone is a soft and flexible material that is easy to work with and easy to form.

Jerusalem Stone is especially popular due to the soft and workable consistency of the element when it is originally pulled from the ground. When first pulled from the ground, Jerusalem stone is a very flexible material that can be as malleable as clay. This workable consistency of the element makes Jerusalem Stone as popular a substance for sculptors as it is for construction workers.

* Jerusalem Stone ages into a beautiful golden hue.

Jerusalem Stone is also referred to as Meleke in the Middle East, which translates from Hebrew and Arabic to kingly or royal.

This name is derived from the fact that when Jerusalem Stone (or Meleke) completely hardens and ages, it becomes a majestic golden color that is as in-destructive as it is mystical.

* Jerusalem Stone ages well.

The well known and ancient Western Wall is built of Jerusalem Stone, and the lack of erosion that is displayed in the Western Wall is one of the many examples of the resistance that Jerusalem Stone has to the enduring tests of both weather and time.

What is Jerusalem Stone used for?

These three preceding factors alone set Jerusalem Stone above all other elements as a preferred material to be used for construction purposes. This is why Jerusalem Stone is becoming more commonly used in the construction of large buildings in the United States and other countries that need to import the material from the Middle East.

Royal Stone is well worth importing from Israel for the visual comparison of ugly gray cement but it is also one of the most practical construction elements there are due to the soft and malleable consistency and the long term resistance to aging.

Jerusalem Stone is used for more than just construction. This material is also practical and desirable for the construction of countertops, gifts (both of religious value and non religious value) and many other things that require both visual appeal and durability.
