Description

Our bold necklace recalls a Coptic example in The Met collection (A.D. 500–700), which is thought to have been found in Egypt near a Christian church that is no longer standing.

The lost church, sited near Thebes on the west bank of the Nile opposite modern Luxor, was dedicated to the warrior saint Theodore Stratelates. Rock crystal was a favored material for religious items; this pendant may have belonged to a ranking prelate at the church.

The church building itself was built on the grounds of Medinet Habu, the mortuary temple of the pharaoh Ramesses III from the early 12th century B.C.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Coptic Crystal Quartz Cross ! When I saw this Coptic Crystal Quartz Cross in your Catalog, I was very impressed with the quality of it, and I loved the design and the Crystal Quartz material with which it was made. It was also very interesting to read about its history behind it ! It is a nice length of 24" L. You can wear it either with formal wear or casual wear clothing. The beautiful beaded necklace really compliments this Coptic Cross very well also. I really love it !
