Jerusalem Stone has been quarried for millennia in the Holy Land: it gives the ancient city of Jerusalem its golden color.
It has been frequently imported to the USA for use in synagogues, but this wonderful material is also an excellent choice for secular buildings. A great example is the soon to be completed Boston B2 Police Station in Dudley Square.
Jerusalem Stone is a dolomitic limestone, extremely dense and more resistant to weathering than oolitic limestones. Besides the Gold shade, it is also available in a taupe-gray color, which is extremely hard and is the paving stone of the plaza in front of the Western Wall in Jerusalem.
