Venus Jasper Beads
Venus Jasper was named for a resemblance to the planet Venus. The elegant blue-gray, ochre, and desert rose tones might also evoke Venus, the Roman goddess of beauty.
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.
