Zebrawood comes from West African countries like Camaroon, Gaboon and The Ivory Coast.
The tree is fairly large and the wood varies in color from a light straw colored to the darker brown "stripes" running with the grain in an alternating fashion.
Many doctors, nurses and other health care professionals choose the Zebrawood. There is so much pressure on them for the physical healing. The healing is in the hands of the Lord and they are just stewards and servants of His hand. What is most important to remember is that we Christians are not of this world and this time on earth is only temporary. What is most important to remember is that we have been saved by grace and redeemed by the blood of Jesus, thus restoring us to a relationship with the Father ... healing our relationship with God.
The distinctive visible characteristic of the stripes of the Zebrawood is a simple reminder of the scriptural prophecy and promise of Isaiah 53:4 -
"But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed."
As with all of our crosses, there were no stains, lacquers or preservatives used to finish your cross; only a natural oil which is hand-rubbed and polished to enhance the woods natural beauty. When you hold our crosses, you are “feeling” the wood and “seeing” the wood as God created it. No two are alike as boards will vary in color and graining due the environmental conditions it was produced. The shine on the cross is related to the amount of “resin” in the make-up of the wood itself. The more resin the higher the shine.
Crosses are handcrafted in our Palestine, Texas (USA) facility offering the highest quality. Crosses do not require polishing. Holding your cross will allow the oils from your hands to go into the wood and create a soft, patina glow. Never use oil or olive oil on our crosses.
Price noted is for 1 HoldingCross. The picture of multiple crosses is to share with you the diversity of the wood.
Each cross comes in an organza bag with a StoryTag telling the name of the wood and a StoryScroll which contains suggested prayers, CareGiving stories and other information. We do not offer seconds or damaged crosses.Our crosses are all first quality and handcrafted in our shop by our family.
