Polychrome Jasper Beads
How do these beads look otherworldly and earthy at the same time? Perhaps because Polychrome Jasper gemstone beads have an unexpected, subtle chatoyancy. Polychrome jasper is also known as Desert Jasper.
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”.
Metaphysically, Polychrome Jasper is said to be a stone of vitality and healing.
