Wooden Jasper beads come in a refreshing blend of earthy colors. Neutral browns, mustard yellow, ochre, and mauve come together to create a wonderful Jasper variety.
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”.
