  "Pure Stone: Archaeological Evidence for Jewish Purity Practices in Late Second Temple Judaism (Miqwa’ot and Stone Vessels)" published on 01 Jan by : Jürgen K. Zangenberg. In the late Second Temple period, from the first century BCE to the second century CE, we find a stone vessel industry in the Jerusalem region whose products were used for storage and measurement. 1 These stone vessels were made for observant Jews who observed the laws of purity strictly, since according to rabbinic halakha, stone vessels always stay pure. 2. Burials from the Second Temple Period, that is, the Late Hellenistic (Hasmonean) and the Early Roman (Herodian) Periods, were revealed in all the areas surrounding Jerusalem, the central city of the period. These burial caves, mainly family tombs, were hewn in a necropolis completely surrounding the city and more than a dozen times its area. The stone industry of the Second Temple period is a unique phenomenon in the material culture of Israel throughout its history. Stone vessels made their first appearance in the Galilee and in Judea, and mainly in Jerusalem, and largely disappeared after the destruction of the Second Temple.

Some of the vessels from the Temple are clearly seen: the Menorah, the silver trumpets, and large trays which are presumably from the Table of the Presence, the Shulchan. All are borne by captives from Jerusalem; their heartache as they are paraded before the masses is preserved to this day in the cold stone. Stone Vessels - An enormous number of stone vessels of the Second Temple period were found in the houses of the Upper City. The vessels were made of easily worked, soft local limestone, found in abundance in Jerusalem and especially on Mount Scopus and on The Mount of Olives.   The archaeological evidence indicates that there was an industry for producing stone vessels during this period centered at Jerusalem, where the priests, festivals, and Temple necessitated more frequent use than other areas (Magen, “Jerusalem as a Center of the Stone Vessel Industry during the Second Temple Period”). An in-depth study of the stone vessel industry thriving in Jerusalem at this time was produced in a chapter called “Jerusalem as the Center of the Stone Vessel Industry during the Second Temple Period” by Yitzhak Magen.
