Every week I will do a spotlight on a gemstone available in my shop. This week I will talk about jasper!
When most people think of jasper they tend to think of a warm, nourishing stone with red tones. The picture above is brecciated jasper in red and grey.
The red sesame jasper beads above are similar to brecciated jasper and has lighter red and grey coloring with some translucent quart inclusions.

Jasper has been used and worn for protective and decorative purposes for thousands of years around the world. It comes in many other different beautiful colors and designs. Here are some of my favorites:
Autumn jasper beads in cute star shapes.
I love the patterns on these dalmatian jasper beads!
Tigerskin jasper chip beads in golden brown.
Ocean jasper stone beads. These ones remind me of tiny planets!
I have many other jasper beads available in my etsy shop. 🙂
Thank you for stopping by!
