The delicate play of dark lines across a light background, which remarkably look as though they were painted by a human hand, earned this stone its descriptive name. Color from the well-defined strokes fans out the same way watercolors and India ink spread across paper. The stone even exhibits paint "splotches" and dotted "splatters." The lines are usually black, brown or red and the stone itself white, tan, gray or pink. Although it is often called jasper, these beads are made out of a calcite or calcium carbonate (commonly referred to as limestone) and stabilized with resin.
The gem was a favorite in the ancient world, and the name jasper can be traced back in Hebrew, Assyrian, Persian, Greek and Latin. In the fourth century, it was called the great "rain-bringer," and it has been thought to strengthen the stomach and cure gynecological troubles. Some also use it to drive away evil spirits and protect against snake and spider bites. It supposedly gives you the courage to speak out and the bravery to achieve personal independence. Landscape jaspers are amongst the most popular varieties.

Thank you for this order of interesting beads. I was surprised at the depth of color of the sodalite, as so often it looks somewhat washed out. The red malachite is fascinating, with its look of layers of sand and sediment -- a good geological representation of much of your state.
The color of these beads is really lovely and unusual -- soft without being pale. Thank you.
Beautiful beads. As usual the beads arrive packaged and labeled, which is such a treat for me. Thank you.
Your gemstones are always very high quality and I enjoy shopping with you.
