"Incredible": Seen Only Twice Since Jesus' Death, Fabric Found with Same Sacred Blue Dye Used on Fringe of High Priests' Garments

Teresa Neumann : Jan 3, 2014  Lea Speyer – Breaking Israel News

In the ancient world, this color was equal to the price of gold and was so rare that today only a few remnants of cloth dyed in this color have ever been found.

"Speak to the Children of Israel and say to them that shall make themselves tzizit on the corners of their garments, throughout their generations. And they shall place upon the tzizit of each corner a thread of turquoise wool (techelet)." -Numbers 15:38

ancient fabric(Israel)—The Israel Antiquities Authority has announced they have found a 2,000-year-old piece of fabric dyed with extract from the Murex Trunculus which produced a unique color called "teckhelet" (meaning blue or turquoise) in Hebrew, and was used on the blue fringe of priestly garments.

Incredibly, scientists have only been able to verify two other fabrics discovered in the last 2,000 years that contain the rare dye.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, the gland of the sea-snail secretes a yellow fluid that, when exposed to sunlight, turns purple-blue. The Book of Chronicles infers that the veil of Solomon's Temple was made of the same color.

Various sources report that researchers believe the fabric may have belonged to Jewish refugees escaping during the Bar-Kokhba revolt against the Romans after the fall of Jerusalem, 132-135 AD.

The discovered fabric represents one of the few remnants of the sacred color ever found.
