Red Jasper Beads
Red Jasper gemstone beads are named for their largely consistent coloration. Unlike many other jaspers, this stone is mostly uniform in color. These beads are red, red, and red! They often have delicate white, clear, and black veining, too.
Jasper is a combination of chalcedony and quartz owing its color to iron inclusions. It has been used in jewelry and decorative arts for thousands of years. Jasper 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, Red Jasper is often used for empowerment. Jaspers are said to facilitate nurturing behaviors and benefit healing.
