Due to a diverse combination of copper minerals that gives this green-blue stone its distinctive look; Eilat Stone is the National stone of Israel. Named after Israel's southernmost city, this stone was once mined there, despite being originally discovered in King Solomon's copper mines located near the Red Sea. This is why the popular stone is also known as 'King Solomon Stone'. Possessing properties similar to diamonds in that each stone has its own unique difference in cut, color, and weight, this ensures that the stone you choose will be a one of a kind stone entirely your own.
