Jasper is an opaque, fine grained species of chalcedony comprised of myriad microscopic quartz crystals intermixed with various impurities. Jasper can come in any color and it takes on many appearances. Many varieties of Jasper are named for the location they are found. Many stones that are called jasper in the gemstone trade are actually rhyolite or other stone materials. The best-known jaspers are bloodstone, picture jasper, porcelain jasper, and brecciated jasper.
I love creating long necklaces that are not toooo over the top or difficult to wear. This pendant will become the centerpiece of a slim necklace featuring tiny faceted sapphire beads with little sterling spacers. I love it!!
lovely color and pattern, a very unique and fun find
These beads are beautiful, the color is unbelievable and the shine really stands out. I use seed beads a lot and have already used these for various bracelets.
Beautiful, large bead with highly detailed blue fancy carp portrayed around the entire bead. It will be a focal for me, with a few bright blue vintage beads and maybe some pearls if I have some white enough, Truly inspiring!
Unique and beautiful beads, have never seen anything like them before.
