Made in the USA. This Cross is precision carved out of non-magnetic, non reactive, brite finished, 100% 304 stainless steel. The dimensions are: 1" tall x 11/16" wide x 3/32" thick. The chain is the beaded "dog tag" type, 24" long, and also made of the same stainless steel. The simplicity and clean lines of the design makes it stand out above the crowded field of otherwise gawdy castings, which are irregularly shaped and finished. It's tough, because it has to be! If you could only hold it in your hand and feel how solid it really is...in more than one way, it's built to never let you down.
The simplest and most common Cross is the Latin Cross, which may not have come into use until the 2nd or 3rd Century. The empty cross, usually favored by Protestants, reminds Christians of the resurrection, while the Crucifix, with Jesus on it, favored by Catholic and Orthodox Churches, is a reminder of Christ's sacrifice.
