Sep 9, 2008
Man has been using stone since the Stone Age in one form or the other. During ancient period, stone was being used to make weapons and the modern age is using it mainly in construction, road building, decorative purpose etc. Different countries in the world have innumerous types of stones amongst the natural resources. The stones vary in color, quality, density etc depending upon the fact where these are mined. The architects and engineers use different types of stones for different purposes.

Jerusalem city in Israel is famous for its stone which is aptly called Jerusalem Stone. Actually there are many kinds of stones available in Jerusalem. But the lime stone of Jerusalem is specifically called the Jerusalem Stone. The stone comes in different vibrant colors. The color generally depends upon where it is from. For example the red and dark grey variety is found in Jerusalem Corridor and gold and light grey are from Mitzpah Ramon area. If you want to have darker gold colored stone then you have to go to Beer Sheva and for white and pink, to Hebron & Bethlehem.

Due to the quality and availability in multiple colors Jerusalem Stone has been extensively used in building churches, temples, mosques and other religious places. Many prominent and historically important buildings have Jerusalem Stone used in their construction and this stone has given beauty and strength to these buildings.

It is believed that SAM NACHUM, a poor construction worker from the village MALCHA, discovered the Jerusalem Stone. This stone gained very high reputation as more and more projects started using it after experiencing its utility and beauty. The heritage monument Western Wall is one of the many noteworthy sites where Jerusalem Stone has been given prominence. Most of the old important buildings in the city of Jerusalem have been constructed with this stone only.

The Jerusalem Stone has become so popular only because of its extra ordinary qualities. It's very elegant and pliable to work with. It is also very strong in nature and hence more durable. This stone is denser that other stone as it is made up of sediments and coral figments. This fact makes this stone a friend of the sculptors and engineers.

As the demand for this stone from all over the world has been increasing and the supply is limited, the Jerusalem Stone has become costlier in today's terms. However because of it's special features it continues to be one of the most popular stones in the world.
