Wild Horse Picture Jasper Beads
Wild Horse Picture Jasper gemstone beads are reminiscent of the American West, and for good reason! Mined along the Oregon and Idaho border, these truly are a western stone. As a variety of Picture Jasper, these beads evoke scenes of unique rock formations and dramatic landscapes. This stone occurs naturally in rich, earthy hues of golden brown, light amber, stone gray, and sage green.
Jasper is a combination of chalcedony and quartz, and has been used in jewelry and decorative arts for thousands of years. Picture Jaspers form from mineral deposits usually in banded patterns. The name Jasper comes from old French, jaspre, meaning “speckled stone”.
Jasper is said to facilitate nurturing behaviors and benefit healing.
