Apple Jasper Beads
Apple Jasper was named for its bright yet earthy red and green coloration, similar to that of apples. Looking at this stone is like visiting a large apple orchard, but perhaps more convenient - no need for your best walking shoes!
Jasper is a combination of chalcedony and quartz, and has been used in jewelry and decorative arts for thousands of years. It was often the stone of choice among Ancient Minoan, Egyptian, and Sasanian (Persian) Empires. The name Jasper comes from old French, jaspre, meaning “speckled stone”.
Jasper is said to facilitate nurturing behaviors and benefit healing.
