Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh - The Original Christmas Gift
If you're looking for a truly unique gift, then you can't beat the original gifts of Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh given to baby Jesus by the Magi AKA Three Kings AKA Three Wise Men on the very first Christmas. This set of three of the ancient world's most valuable treasures (the cool stuff of the time) each come in handmade, satin-lined wooden boxes with brass latches and hinges. Hmm, I always wondered what Myrrh and Frankincense looked like. The set includes:
Octagonal box contains a hand-blown crystal globe with flakes of 23-karat gold suspended in de-ionized water.
Round box contains tears of Hojary frankincense gathered from the resinous deposits of the Boswellia sacra tree in Oman and Yemen (considered the highest-quality available).
Square box holds dark red crystals of myrrh harvested from the thorny branches of the Commiphora myrrha tree found on the Arabian peninsula.
