Temple Mount Mezuzah
Please note that each one of these pieces looks a bit different. This is because it is made from stone salvaged from the Temple Mount.
This is a very special Mezuzah with a very special story:
In 2003, the Waqf (Muslim religious authority that administers the Temple Mount) started to do massive construction on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. In the course of this construction, they did a lot of excavation. This excavation was done without any regard to the extreme archeological sensitivity of the spot, which contains stones from the ruins of both the first and second Temples. They took the excavated material and hauled it to a garbage dump in the Kidron Valley outside of of the Old City of Jeruselem.
At that time, an artist in Israel who heard about this story, decided to go to the dump and collect as many of these holy stones as he could. He formed these stones into Mezuzahs. In this way, he felt he could salvage something of the original holiness that these stones had. This is the Temple Mount Mezuzah that we are offering here.
This Mezuzah is made out of an original piece of Temple Mount Stone. A letter "Shin" of Jerusalem stone is attached on it's face.
Please note that the color will vary on this product. Natural Jerusalem stone can range from off white to pink in color. Jerusalem Stone is a natural product and each Mezuzah will have unique surface characteristics such as differences in texture or cracks. These are characteristics of Jerusalem Stone and don't in any way compromise the strength, quality or beauty of the product. You can read more about Jerusalem stone here.

Gorgeous and lightweight. Carved from a solid piece of temple mount stone. Only the shin is a separate piece that is attached. Gorgeous color. Highly recommended
Description says only the center is Temple Mount stone, but clearly mine was made from 1 piece. I called about it, was told it was all 1 piece of Temple Mount stone. Very beautiful stone color!
Small imperfection on top of piece was easily and invisibly fixed using tan plumber's putty.
