Rainforest Jasper Beads
Rainforest Jasper gemstone beads are named for their deep green hues. Rainforest Jasper includes fascinating radial inclusions, and often clear quartz.
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.
