Lovely olive wood crosses made from olive trees from the Bethlehem area. It is better known as the comfort cross as holding the soft wood offers one solace and over time the cross will develop its own natural patina adding hues and richness. This cross is also environmentally friendly since it is carved from the pruned branches of olive wood trees. It is shaped unevenly in order to fit into your hand comfortably. Please note that no two crosses look exactly the same. This is a beautiful spiritual keepsake for yourself and to give as a gift to those you care about. Sometimes just holding this cross will bring comfort.
