Orbicular Jasper Beads
Stare too long at Orbicular Jasper gemstone beads, and you might think they are moving! Like a Laguna Beach tide pool, these beads have a lot going on, but everything is working together harmoniously.
Orbicular jaspers have orb-like inclusions of quartz or feldspar. In cut sections, these appear as circles or eyes. Jasper is a combination of chalcedony and quartz. The name Jasper comes from old French, jaspre, meaning “speckled stone”.
Jasper is said to facilitate nurturing behaviors and benefit healing.
