GIFTS OF THE WISEMEN

Gifts of the Wisemen: Gold, Frankencense and Myrrh

Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh were the three gifts the Wise Men (also called The Three Kings or Magi) brought from the East to celebrate the birth of the baby Jesus (Matthew 2:11).  Though many people have heard of Frankincense and Myrrh and have even sung about them in Christmas carols, few have actually seen, let alone owned, these precious substances.  Frankincense and Myrrh are aromatic resins extracted from rare trees.  Frankincense, an almost white resin, was one of the most prized and costly substances in the ancient world, worth more than its weight in gold.  It was used in medicines and incense (Exodus 30:34).  Myrrh, a dark resin, was widely used in perfumes, incense and embalming.   Gold has been long valued due to its beauty and resistance to corrosion.  It has been used in jewelry and commerce for thousands of years. We have housed this historic set  in an attractively carved 4 by 6 inch (10cm. x 15cm.) wooden box imported from India.  Included are natural gold flakes and nuggets as well as actual Frankincense and Myrrh resin imported from the Middle East.  A descriptive card explains the significance of the items.  This set makes an excellent teaching aid or a precious and long remembered gift.  This is your chance to own or give "the original Christmas gifts".   We have only a very limited number of these boxes available.  Please order early to avoid disappointment.
