Gemstone Beads, Autumn Jasper, Natural, Round, 8mm. Sold Per 39cm Strand

Jasper is an opaque chalcedony that comes in a wide variety of colors. The term "jasper" itself comes from the Greek work iaspi, meaning "spotted stone." Jasper is a gemstone that has been used all over the world. The ancient priests of Egypt carved jasper into beautiful jewelry while the Minoans used jasper for seals. While jasper is widely available today, the gemstone was once treasured as a valuable stone.

Jasper gemstones are found all over the world, but raw autumn jasper materials are often found in India, Madagascar and South Africa. Agate and carnelian are chalcedony like jasper, but jasper is distinguished by its opacity. Jasper is an impure silicon dioxide with unique patterns formed during mineral consolidation.

Jasper is considered a powerful healing stone. Autumn jasper helps us move beyond just surviving to making us glad to be alive. Imagine pumpkins, red maple leaves and a long leisurely walk through the country that helps you kick back and relax. The heat of summer is over and the evenings are just cool enough to light a fire in the woodstove or fireplace. Life is good. Somehow you'd forgotten. That's what autumn jasper reminds us of whenever we wear it. Autumn jasper helps to ground and center the wearer, providing support while inspiring tranquility. Personal and environmental negative energy is dispelled, helping the individual reconnect with the Earth.

Jaspers tend to be hardy stones, and autumn jasper is no different with a Mohs hardness of 6-1/2 to 7. The best method though for cleaning autumn jasper is still the tried and true warm soapy water with a soft cloth or bristle brush. Be sure to dry the stone and all jewelry settings thoroughly before storing or wearing. It is a good idea to avoid prolonged exposure to high heat as this can sometimes create color changes in varieties of quartz.

"Ah!" It's not surprising that the word "autumn" begins with "ah!" Whether it's your favorite season or not, autumn calls for relaxing and winding down. The mixture of warm reds and muted dark greens in autumn jasper beads add that feeling wherever you use them. Draw out the greens of autumn jasper with contrasting red gemstones such as carnelian and the red hues with green stones such as nephrite jade.
