Dragon Blood Jade Beads
These Dragon Blood Jade gemstone beads are the green color of jade we know and love, with surprising speckles of red color! The greens vary from sage greens to bright apple, uniting with red inclusions the striking color of crimson. Prized in Asian cultures for thousands of years, Jades are actually found in many different regions of the world.
Jade is actually a catch-all term for two seperate stones - jadeite and nephrite. Jades are formed in metamorphic rocks. They are composed of fine-grained crystal structures. The distinctive green color of jade is actually caused by impurities of chromium. Myanmar (Burma) is the top source of Jades, though they are found all over the globe.
Metaphysically, jades are said to evoke prosperity and good luck.
