Gorgeous earthy colors of of brown and cream with streaks of black and metallic gray give this Jasper its very special beauty. I have used the smooth round beads in a stretch bracelet connected with a double bead cap link. At the link hangs a very serene charm of Lord Buddha's head on a natural strand of greek leather. The charm is made in the USA and is gold-plated lead-free Pewter.
Jaspers have been used as ornamental and gemstones from ancient times. They are microcrystalline Quartz in association with a variety of other minerals which give the Jaspers colorful patterns and bands. Jaspers are often named according to its color or patterns. Zebra Iron Jasper is made of earthy brown colors and gets its name from the black and gray streaks, which contain iron, running through the matrix. It is found in Africa.
