      Well, I have seen sealed bottles with holy land air within, but none of this is really a problem. It is a problem if you go to google earth a zoom in at Apamea in Syria and se the many hundred holes dug by thieves. A major sites has been wasted and probably totally destroyed. It is organized crime, and there is a market for them, evidently.

      But you can check for yourself.

      Last year, when I spoke at a workshop at Haifa University, we were going to go to Acco in the morning of my sightseeing day and Nazareth in the afternoon, where I was _so_ looking forward to being offered sawdust from the floor of Joseph's workshop, that had been sawed by Jesus himself ... unfortunately, the lovely lunch in an excellent Arab restaurant in a lovely corner of Acco used up most of the afternoon! 

      I didn't even think of stones from the Sea of Galilee that He might have trodden.

      >>It might be possible to obtain an antiquity collection at an estate sale.  Some people collected antiquities as they may be considered rare and were supposed to appreciate in value over the long term.  Sometimes a large number of antiquities or fakes might appear on the market depressing the price of certain types of antiquities.  I found something listed as an "Iron Age" dipper juglet on Ebay at auction with a starting price of 99 cents (.99 US dollar).
      >>A 3000 year old "Temple of Sheba" inscription was listed at 95 cents.  I suppose it is difficult to find an honest antiquities dealer.
      >>There were "stones from the Sea of Galilee where Jesus was reported as having walked" listed on Ebay for $9.99.  It is difficult to sell stones of dull and earthy appearance at any price.
