Australian Butter Jasper Beads
As unique in color as they are soothing, Australian Butter Jasper beads deserve a spot in your collection. Australian Butter Jasper is named for its smooth and buttery appearance. Light yellow tones mix with soft grey and white striations to create a highly wearable stone. We love this stone paired with other Springy pastels!
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.
