Though many people know the biblical story of the legendary gifts of the Magi, told in the Gospel according to Matthew, few have experienced the extraordinary scent of frankincense and myrrh. These fragrant resins, used by ancient Greeks and Romans for medicinal and religious purposes, can be enjoyed on your evening fire or as incense. Our set of three mango-wood chests also contains the third gift of the Magi: gold. Here, delicate flakes of 23-karat gold are presented in a handblown glass ball. Comes with a certificate of authenticity.


Frankincense is from Boswellia sacra trees in the Dofar region of Oman. Myrrh is from Commiphora trees found throughout the Arabian Peninsula. The chests are made in India. Each chest is approximately 3 1/2"W x 3"H.

              Comments about Historic Gifts of the Magi Set:

              I kept the "Gift of Kings" for myself. However, it is also a lovely gift to give and it tells a beautiful story. I told the story to my Grandaughter about the three wise men taking the gifts to Jesus and showed her each gift as I was telling the story. Please, Please, Please bring this gift back for the next XMAS season.

                          This is exactly how it looks online or in the catalog, no disappointments at all. The purchase and delivery were just great as always with National Geographic store.
